This note is to announce that the 2014 ARRL Rocky Mountain Division Convention scheduled to be held in Laramie,

Wyoming this July has been CANCELLED due to extenuating circumstances.
 
We thank those involved with its planning for the time and effort put forward on behalf of hams across the Division.

We are grateful that the Albuquerque Duke City Hamfest has stepped forward to serve as alternate host of the 2014 ARRL Rocky Mountain Division Convention.
 
It will now take place August 8-10 in sunny Albuquerque, New Mexico.
 
Led by individuals who organized the 2011 Division Convention in Taos, the annual Duke City Hamfest is a standing three day amateur radio convention
 
that occurs in one of Albuquerque's largest hotels,

so it will ably fit the bill as a Division Convention members have become accustomed to.

More details about the 2014 ARRL Rocky Mountain Division Convention in Albuquerque will be provided soon.  Please mark your calendars!

73,
Brian Mileshosky N5ZGT

Director, ARRL Rocky Mountain Division


Upcoming events:

3nd Annual SWAPFEST, held at the Masonic Temple at 109 S. Gould St.
Sheridan, WY. 9:00am till 2:00pm on Saturday, April 19th 2014
Field Day in June

below is the announcement for the ARRL centennial year long W!AW state
operation May 28 thru Jun 3
Dwayne Allen our Division Vice Director is heading that up. He has
asked Walt to put together the operating schedule, so if you would like
to participate from your home station or as a club you need to contact
Walt and get on the schedule.


WANTED - Operators for W1AW/7 in Wyoming

As part of the ARRL Centennial celebration events, the league station,
W1AW, will be operated remotely from all states
during the year.  W1AW/7 operation in Wyoming will occur during two
weeks -

May 28th  to June 3rd
October 29th  to November 4th.

Our Division Vice Director, WY7FD, has asked that I help coordinate
operations for the first week.

Portable operation of W1AW/n has turned out to be a very popular event.
As you may have noticed, when W1AW/n is on the air,  it sounds like a
DXpedition pile-up.

This message is sent out as the first step to line up Wyoming hams to
participate.

As a large state with few active hams, it will be a challenge for us to
make as many Wyoming contacts as possible on all bands and modes.

If you are able and would like to help us with this event, please let
me know your desire by email.

I need to know your preferences for band, mode and times of operation.

Let's have a big time and make a big noise from the Cowboy state.
