Welcome to the North Dakota ARRL Section News for the 3rd Quarter of 2014

The winter season is upon us and now is the time to start dropping hints  to family members of what kind of ham radio gifts you want from Santa Claus this year.  Be it a new HF Radio, a new HF Beam or a new ARRL Handbook.  Go for the stars and maybe Santa Claus will be good to you this year. Hi Hi     Hope you have a Merry Christmas and a fun filled 2015!

The 2014 ARRL Centennial QSO Party is winding down with a month or so to go to finish the ARRL Centennial Awards. A big thank you to all of for helping give North Dakota to the rest of the world in 2014!
