Design Issues for a VHF-UHF Solid State RF Power Amplifier

Carl K9LA will deviate from his usual presentations on propagation and solar topics to discuss design issues for a 50 Watt VHF-UHF solid state RF power amplifier.

Team W4AAW Totally Remote Multi-Multi Contesting

How in the world did a M/M contest station deliver a top ten finish with no operators in the shack? Team W4AAW has taken remote operation to the next level, fully automated M/M contesting. There’s even a zero-cost client option. We’ll explain how we did this, give you a taste of what it’s like to operate a M/M station remotely, and tell how you can join us in exploring this new frontier in amateur radio contesting.

Thank You to FRC from WWROF

I am pleased to announce that the Frankford Radio Club (FRC) has made a *second*  donation of $1,000 to the World Wide Radio Operators Foundation (WWROF). In a unanimous decision by the FRC’s Board of Directors, this contribution supports WWROF’s mission to advance the state-of-the-art for contest operating around the world. Further, it will enable WWROF to continue to offer provision/support for some of contesting’s most highly valued assets (e.g., awards, log checking infrastructure, standards, etc.).

On behalf of the entire WWROF leadership team, I want to personally thank each member of the Frankford Radio Club for their leadership and support to the contest community!

73, John, K1AR

Chairman, WWROF

WWROF Provides Grant for Log Checking Server

The WWROF has provided a $4,500 grant for the acquisition of a new server for use by the CQ family of contests.  The server is the critical infrastructure for hosting the CQ contest web sites, the log receiving robot, and the log checking software.

According to CQ WW Contest Director Randy Thompson, K5ZD, “The old server was no longer able to handle the growing number of CQ WW logs. We needed more capability to continue making log checking improvements and help the team of volunteer log checkers work more efficiently. This new server should handle our needs until the next sunspot peak.”

Thanks to Dave Pascoe KM3T for providing the work needed to install the new server and reinstall the necesary software.

Funds for the grant were made possible by donations from amateur radio contesters around the world. The recent funding of CQ Contest certificates and the server have lowered the pool of funds available. If you enjoy the CQ Contests, please make a contribution.
