MARC will have a QRP Outing at Pinhook Park Parking Lot on Sunday December 9th between 3:00 PM and 6:00PM local time. We will operate no matter what the weather. This event is held in conjunction with the Colorado QRP Club. The actual contest runs between 4:00PM and 6:00PM local time. The actual contest is QRP CW only, on 20 meters. Only one person can operate in the contest at a time; so we will take 15 minute turns operating CW on 20 meters. You are welcome to operate your equipment on other bands using other modes when you are not in your contesting time slot.
