2019 National Robotics Challenge at Veterans Memorial Coliseum

Reposted from the Marion Amateur Radio Club Facebook page

The Marion Amateur Radio Club of Marion Ohio, will be operating a Special Event station at the 2019 National Robotics Challenge at Veterans Memorial Coliseum at the Marion County Fairgrounds. We will be operating on HF ( SSB Phone, PSK31, FT8, and CW) and on DMR (Talk groups 313964- Marion, Ohio Local, 3139- Ohio Statewide, TAC 310, or Brandmeister 91- Worldwide) under our club callsign W8GVB on Thursday April 11th, Friday April 12th, and Saturday April 13th at varying times. It was kind of a short notice idea so we aren’t sure if the ARRL will get it listed in time but were going to give it a shot anyways. If you hear our station on the air, give us a shout as we will be ushering youth into our station and display to operate under local control to make contacts across the world and experience our hobby. The Marion Amateur Radio Club and Marion County Ohio Amateur Radio Emergency Services has been volunteering our time for the past several years to staff this event and this year we have decided to promote and demonstrate our hobby to hundreds of technically minded youth from all over the world that attend this event. We hope to hear you and let’s have some fun on the air!!!! 73’s and GL de W8GVB
