The Southern Crescent Amateur Radio Group will be participating in the Georgia QSO Party’s 55th Anniversary on APRIL 9, 2016. It will be held at the Henry County Emergency Operations Center at 526 Industrial Blvd, McDonough, GA 30253.
VE testing will begin at 9:10 AM local.
The contest starts at 2 PM local time (1800 GMT or 6pm) until midnight. We will operate until sunset and represent Henry County in the contest. We will also use this as a training drill for emergency in the field. We plan to operate from the pavilion behind the EOC building. Training will be inside if needed as well as anyone needing to test for their licensee.
Let me know if you can come and help. We will start meeting for the contest at 10:30 for set up and any training and later we can lunch. This will allow free operations before the start the QSO. (We could work other States QSO Party)
Thank you – 73’s
