Basic Information


Welcome to the North Dakota ARRL Section News for the 2nd Quarter of 2014

The summer is slowly slipping by with signs of fall in the air.  Won't be long and football will be in full swing with the Snowbirds making their plans for the winter sunshine down south.

The second week of the 2014 ARRL Centennial QSO Party for North Dakota was a success.  The North Dakota hams using the W1AW/0 call letters made over 15,000 contacts during the week starting August 20th, 2014.  Great Job and thank you for helping give North Dakota to the rest of the world.
