Our successful IC7300 Radio raffle proceeds were sent to WRTC 2018. This is our third tent that SMC has sponsored.
Congratulations to SMC members N4TZ and N9RV being chosen as WRTC competitors.
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.
Here are the details…
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
Right before I left for SMCfest I sent out an update saying we still had a long way to go, 90 tickets, to meet our goal. Well, we did it! We sold 97 tickets by the end of day. However, we decided not to do the drawing at SMCfest.
We will draw the winner at W9DXCC, September 15th-16th. We will ship the radio to the winner so you have it before the contest season starts.
We will continue to sell tickets if someone still wants a chance to win and support WRTC 2018. The cutoff for ticket sales will be September 9th.
Thanks to everyone for making it possible for SMC to be one of the largest US Club supporters of WRTC 2018.
