• Third AM Rally is this Weekend

    From ARRL de WD1CKS@WLARB to QST on Monday, January 28, 2019 19:08:34

    The third annual AM Rally[1] is just ahead. The event, which aims to encourage the use of AM on 160, 80, 40, 20, 15, 10, and 6 meters, gets under way at 0000 UTC on Saturday, February 2 (Friday, February 1, in US time zones) and continues until 0700 UTC on Monday, February 4.

    The AM Rally is open to any radio amateurs running full-carrier amplitude modulation using any type of radio equipment - modern, vintage, tube, solid-state, software-defined, military, boat anchor, broadcast, homebrew, or commercial. Numerous transceivers in use today offer AM capability. A lot of hams enjoy restoring and using vintage Amateur Radio equipment. The event website[2] has complete AM Rally details, contact information, award categories, logging, and tips on how to get the most out of your station equipment in AM mode.

    Contact[3] Clark Burgard, N1BCG, for more information.

    The event is sponsored by Radio Engineering Associates (REA[4]), in cooperation with ARRL, which supports all modes of Amateur Radio operation. W1AW will play a leading role in the event, as it has for the past 2 years.
