The final posting of the 2013-2014 CTRI Champions Leaderboard is now available. We did not quite make the 80 million point challange, but got pretty close! If you click on the link below, you may download it. As usual, it is a Microsoft Excel 97-2003 format.

Rev 1: Added 2 contest results from K1DM. Still did not break 80 million points!

Meeting Notice, August 2014
Meeting Notice, August 2014 avatar

It’s that time again. If you are familiar with the interactive meeting notice skip down to “Topics“. This is an interactive meeting notice. What, you may ask, is an interactive meeting notice? As the phrase suggests, it is a meeting notice which requires interaction by the readers. For example: we need to have topics for presentation at the meeting; we need presenters; we need volunteers to provide lunch; we need to know who is coming to the meeting so the quantity of lunch portions may be determined, and so on. This post will be updated as interactions (comments) are appended.

Hi all,


Where is the time disappearing to. Just a reminder that the W1AW/1 operation from RI starts this Tuesday night at 20:00 local and runs for 1 week. I will have 3 stations up and running from my QTH. If anyone looking is for a place to operate from I do still have slots open, drop me an email with your availability and I will find you some  airtime.

I almost forgot to put this up on the web site. Please post your results for this FINAL contest in the CTRI Champions series for the 2013-2014 season by adding a comment/reply to this posting. I will post the final leaderboard on the website around the end of the month. Happy summer to everyone.

July Meeting Postponed !

CTRI Contest Group;

Several of our regular meeting attendees will be out of the country, out of town, or taking care of their wives this weekend.  Additionally, I am certain many of us have family visiting over the 4th of July weekend, or are visiting family for the weekend.  Thus, getting together would be fun, but lonely.

We have several things going on this month that need our attention anyway, and these things are well underway already.  The CQ WW VHF contest is upon us; IARU/WRTC events are coming quickly, the Centennial ARRL convention is happening in Hartford, CT, AND W1AW/1-RI is almost here.

If you need something to do this weekend, try working all thirteen of the original colonies (K2*).  They seem to be everywhere.  This is a cleaver way to celebrate the 4th of July.

For now, 73, gud DX and Happy holiday.  Mike, K1DM
