Rookie Roundup

The ARRL Rookie Roundup is this coming Sunday from 1:00 to 7:00 PM Eastern Time. (1800 to 2359 UTC).  The SPARC club station will be open for all those who want to get on the air.  A number of experienced operators will be there to guide you.

The Rookie Roundup is intended for those Hams first licensed in 2017, 2018 or 2019 but any ham who has not experienced the fun and challenge of HF is invited to come out.
