Handiham World for 01 February 2012

Welcome to Handiham World.
W0ZSW to Participate in Fourteenth Annual Minnesota QSO Party!
TS-570 transceiver

The Fourteenth Annual Minnesota QSO Party is on Saturday, February 04, 2012. It is presented by the Minnesota Wireless Association. Stations will be active 8:00 AM CST (1400 UTC) Through 6 PM CST (2400 UTC). Look for Handiham HQ station W0ZSW during the QSO Party.

Because the station will be staffed by real live humans (members of the Handiham affiliated Stillwater Amateur Radio Association, SARA), the Remote Base station W0ZSW will be off line for the duration of the contest. The W0EQO repeater will be active and connected to the Handiham Conference Server.

W0ZSW Remote Base service will be restored at 6:00 PM CST (2400 UTC) on Saturday, February 4, at the end of the contest. W0EQO Remote Base at Courage North will remain in service throughout the contest.
The SARA members are also going to help us assess equipment and clean and organize the Handiham station area and storage room. We will also check the station infrastructure and prepare some of our computer equipment with digital mode software for the upcoming Minnesota Radio Camp session in June.

We hope to hear you on the air!

For Handiham World, I'm...
Patrick Tice, WA0TDA
Handiham Manager
