I can usually tell the time of year by the number of amateur radio contests that my husband hosts. We are nearing the months when our house can be very busy during the weekends with contesters coming and going as their shifts start and stop. In addition to the radio operations, there is always a great sense of team and camaraderie that comes with the contests. It is great to be part of such a wonderful community.
I hope that you will take some time to look through the events for this month and find something that truly sparks your interest.
Until next month…
