The COOKEN A.R.C. "Contest Animals" will put WW8OH on the air again this year, from either LICKING or ( Note correction to Subject line) FAIRFIELD COUNTY. Bands will be 80-40-20-15-10. We will be using an 80M or 160m horizontal loop at 70 ft for 80-40 CW station, and a hexbeam for 20-15-10 SSB station. Two or three stations will be on the air simultaneously, each running one hundred watts, The third station will be for 80/40 SSB.
This great twelve hour ( noon til midnight EDST)(1600z-0400z) contest always makes for a fun Saturday, with the vagarities of propagation always one step ahead of the best laid plans of mice and men.
While we are chasing all the 88 Ohio counties on 40-80, we also look to work all other 49 US states and 11 Canadian sections, and to provide our county to as many county hunters around the US and he world as possible.
Listen for us around the designated center frequencies for each band and mode.
