This years Carnation Days Special event will be held at the JayCees pavilion at Silver Park. This is the pavilion at the top of the hill near the ball fields.
We are on the air each year on the 3rd Saturday in August, to commemorate Alliance, OH as the birthplace of the Scarlet Carnation.
If you work our special event station, and would like a commemorative certificate, send a QSL & Large (8″ X 10″) SASE, or $2 S & H to:
P.O. Box 3344
Alliance, OH 44601
(The 910 W. Mill St address which is on the ARRL listing will work too)
we’ll be on the air from 1400 – 2100Z, on the following frequencies: 14.250 14.035 7.240 7.035. Of course, these are +/- QRM.
This Saturday is the W8T special event. This year, due to the cancellation of the annual Taylorcraft Fly-in, we’ll be setting up at the KD8MQ QTH (910 W. Mill St).
There was a mis-print on the league website; likely my mistake, not theirs. The callsign to be used is incorrectly listed as KD8MQ. This is incorrect, as we’ve secured W8T for the weekend.
We’ll be operating SSB on 28.260, 21.260, 14.260, 7.260 +/- QRM. Other modes & frequencies may be tried as circumstances warrant. We’ll be on the air from 10 AM to 4 PM EDT.
For a certificate & QSL, send a large SASE to John Myers, 910 W Mill St, Alliance, OH 44601. We will be operating SSB, on these frequencies. Other bands, & modes may be attempted.
Well, the title of this post says it all. The Zero Beat is back in a format which is a lot more “Editor Friendly”. You can read the latest issue on our newsletter page.
Well, it’s time once again for the Alliance ARC’s traditional “Pre-Field Day Picnic” at Silver park, and all local hams are invited. Instead of their normal meeting on Wednesday, June 10th, there will be a cookout at the park, with the club meeting afterwards.
Cooking will start at 6 PM. The meeting will begin around 7:30.
Meat will be provided. We are asking for everyone to bring a covered dish to share. In addition, we need volunteers to bring:
- Hot dog, & hamburger Buns
- Pop / water
If you can supply any of these, contact John, KD8MQ, at 330-936-5021.
The picnic will be at the log cabin in Silver Park (click here for map). We’re the 2nd drive on the left, as you are coming down the hill from Union ave. If you come to the lake, you’ve come too far.
Hope you can come!
