School Club Roundup is February 10-14!

The "Winter/Spring Term" School Club Roundup gets underway Monday, February 10 at 1300 UTC, and continues through Friday, February 14, at 2359 UTC. Stations may operate no more than 6 hours in any 24 hour period (up to a maximum of 24 hours). The twice-yearly event is an opportunity for school club stations -- from elementary school to college -- to get on the air for a friendly radio activity. Non-school clubs and individuals are encouraged to participate too.

Sponsored by the ARRL, the ARRL Hudson Division http://hudson.arrl.org/ Education Task Force, and the Long Island Mobile Amateur Radio Club (LIMARC http://www.limarc.org/), the contest aims to foster contacts with and among school radio clubs.

Stations exchange signal reports, class ("Individual", "Club," or "School"), and US state, Canadian province/territory, or DXCC entity. Stations may operate on all amateur bands except 60, 30, 17 and 12 meters (no repeater contacts, and VHF/UHF contacts must be on recognized simplex frequencies, except calling frequencies). Stations may operate phone, CW, or digital modes. The top three entries in each category will receive an Award Certificate. Entry categories are Elementary, Middle/Intermediate/Junior High School, Senior High School College/University. Non-school clubs or multiop groups and individuals are also eligible for certificates.
