Welcome to the North Dakota ARRL Section News for the 3rd Quarter 2013
Summer is already over and we are now getting our homes, cars and antennas ready for old man winter. The trees are dropping leaves and signaling us to be ready to enjoy those cold evenings in the warm radio shack.
The Grand Forks (FORX ARC), the State Convention in Fargo (RRRA) and the Totten Trail Hamfests were well attended with many friendly ham faces to visit with.
The Grand Forks Hamfest was held in East Grand Forks this year with many flea market tables available for shopping. The State Convention this year in Fargo was held at the Red River Valley Fairgrounds with a well attended ARRL Forum. The Totten Trail Hamfest was the last North Dakota hamfest in 2013 with many good flea market buys in Garrison at the Community Center.
**** Upcoming Events ***
The Central Dakota ARC Hamfest will be held in late February 2014 in Bismarck, ND. More details as they become available.
Dayton Hamvention will be held May 16th thru May 18th, 2014 in Dayton Ohio. If you have never attended this one, you need to make your plans. It's the largest National Convention for Ham Radio in the USA.
