NA Collegiate Championship


SMC announces the sponsorship of the NA Collegiate Championship. We want out members to contact their college or university and help them get on the air for this. We also want other contest clubs to do the same. The goal is to get young people involved in contesting. Invite the prospective operators to your station in a contest and help them get on the air.

SMC Wins NAQP Challenge!


For the second time, SMC wins the NAQP Challenge. Thanks to all of the SMC members for making this happen. We set a record for participation in August NAQP SSB. You should be very proud. 

We should also thank all of the volunteers that rallied the members and pushed us to get on to operate. Anthony, AB9YC; CJ, WT2P; Tim, K9WX; Ryan, KB9OWD and Pat, WW9R should be noted for their individual efforts. 

Here are the results
