Hope everyone who was able to take a break had a good one.The Amateur Radio Club will be back in action as usual this week, with the Wildcat Winter Expo tomorrow (Thursday) from 6-8 in the Union. If you can help set up at 5:30, or stop by sometime during the event, any help would be appreciated.

Our first meeting of the semester will be next Wednesday, January 24th. We'll meet at 6:30 p.m. in Ward 135. Topics will include planning events for the coming semester, and information about School Club Roundup, which is February 12-16.

Finally, a reminder that the MAARS club will be holding another testing session on February 10th from 9-11 a.m. Go get licensed or upgrade and get on the air! Hope to see or talk to you soon. As always I keep the repeater on and the inbox open for questions, comments, or suggestions.

In typical collegiate fashion, there was a flurry of activity during the last hour of the February 2018 school club roundup. KSUARC operators were able to finish the contest by contacting several other collegiate clubs on 40 meters. The old KSUARC record, set in October 2016 at 17,812 points, was surpassed by the new total of 22,627. A further breakdown follows:

  • Total Contacts: 179
  • Total States and Provinces Worked = 32
  • Total Countries Worked = 1
  • Total Number of Clubs Worked: 1
  • Total Number of Schools Worked: 17

There were many highlights of the event, but one of particular interest was talking to N3FJP, the creator of the software used to log the contest. Thanks to everyone who helped make this year's roundup a reality. Special thanks to Vern, WØVMP, for all his time put in and for making several CW contacts.

KSUARC president James Copeland, KDØICP, was featured on p. 96 of the January 2017 QST, in a promotion for the Winter ARRL School Club Roundup of 2017. (information) Congrats to our outstanding president for this recognition! This story is archived in our photos section. Note: the promotion above has been tweaked to include dates and information for the winter 2018 School Roundup. (posted by KAØJPM, secretary-treasurer)
