2m Simplex Contest Summer 2020


TARS 2M FM Simplex Contest

Welcome to the Summer 2020 TARS 2M FM simplex contest. All hams in the tri-state area is welcome to participate.

This will take place of the normal August club meeting. The board felt rather than hold another ZOOM meeting this would be a good way to involve everyone, have some fun and perhaps make a few acquaintances.

This contest helps us all be prepared in a number of ways, gets to know one another, allow for some friendly competition and try out our emergency preparedness skills.  Since this contest is limited to the 2M FM band, it does not require any fancy equipment and all can participate.

The contest is just a short 3 hour timeframe

This is a great time for all local area hams to participate and join in the activity!

When: Thursday August 13  6-9  PM CDT (8/13 23:00Z – 8/14 02:00Z)

Objectives: To make as many contacts as possible, encouraging the use of 2M simplex mode, and to have fun!

The Hunter vs. the Hunted:  Consider operating from a remote location, high point, or perhaps a roving mobile; Mobile stations are able to re-work stations from different zip codes!

Frequencies: The contest will take place solely on 2 meter band using simplex mode; (e.g. no repeater contacts) on the 12 designated simplex frequencies.

You may submit the written log sheets or an Excel spreadsheet log is also attached.
