AU22 School Club Roundup Coming Up

Arthur here with some updates.

We had a great time with the Collegiate QSO Party and managed to get a good handful of contacts, despite our antenna challenges. Will share our score results once we receive them!

This upcoming week is the ARRL School Club Roundup. W8LT will have the hamshack open Monday Oct 17 – Friday Oct 21.

If you’re interested in joining us at the hamshack for SCR, add your name to this When2Meet (only select timeslots that have “Shack Open” in the Available column).


To coincide with SCR, we’re having a Zoom meeting Monday Oct 17 @ 7PM. Anyone is welcome to join us on Zoom! A couple W8LT members will be at the shack to give a quick virtual tour and answer any questions/advise new club members. This will be a casual meeting to encourage folks to join us at the shack for SCR!

Use this link to join our Zoom meeting on Monday Oct 17 at 7PM (est).


If you have any questions or issues with the links, you can email me at

I’m hoping to see more folks in the hamshack next week for School Club Roundup!



AU22 Collegiate QSO Party This Weekend

Hi folks,

We never announced last year’s Collegiate QSO Party results. For 2021 we made 3rd place with 222 points (and beat Michigan). Let’s see how well we do this year!

This coming Saturday and Sunday (Oct. 1-2) W8LT will be participating in the Collegiate QSO Party. You can sign up here if you want to join us in the hamshack.

We’ll be fighting various circumstances which might put us at a competitive disadvantage.

For one, we haven’t been able to repair the 40m dipole yet, so we’ll only be able to get on bands the hex beam can reach.

Our timeframe will also be confined by gameday tailgating & traffic on Saturday. We’ll get to Bevis at 7AM, but won’t be able to stay long Saturday afternoon.

With all those challenges in mind, I still expect this weekend to be a fun time. I bet we’ll get a good amount of contacts.

If you have any questions about this weekend, email me at
