Happy Thanksgiving to all CTRI members and their families!
Let me start this month’s notes by apologizing for my relative inactivity over the last month or so. I’ve been pretty busy with work, school, and family, and just recently was hired as the Graduate Research Assistant in PC’s History department, so I have not had much free time with which to enjoy amateur radio in general. Unfortunately I missed operating in the CQ WW CW Contest, which I had been counting on to improve my country count of 80M and 160M. There’s always next year, I suppose.
On to December’s contest happenings. December is a great month for contesting, although I don’t know that most contesters would view it as such. There are some interesting opportunities with plenty of activity to satisfy almost anyone I would imagine.
If you like 160M December and January are your months. The ARRL 160-Meter Contest runs between 2200z December 6th through 1600z December 8th.
