County’s Bowdoin Park, Pavilion 4 from 2pm Saturday June 25 through 2pm Sunday June 26. Bowdoin Park is located at 85 Sheafe Road in the town of Poughkeepsie.

You’re invited to come watch, operate, and meet other hams. Bring friends and family. If you can’t, but want to contact us on the air, we’re operating as K2QS. (GOTA is K2CXP)

We’re also operating a GOTA (Get On The Air) station, especially for those new hams, inactive hams, or non-hams (with a licensed control operator at the operating point). Technician and Novice class licensees are also encouraged to participate. 

Joining us on Sunday will be the Dutchess County Office of Emergency Response, with their staffed Mobile Command Vehicle.

We will be using 146.970 PL 100 as the repeater to coordinate talk-in for those of use who will be going there for the first time. As you get closer 146.500 will be our simplex.

Handy CW Abbreviation Guide for CW Neophytes

As a CW newbie, I often wondered if I copied wrong or the use of certain letter sequences were intentional.  Some operators pepper their transmission with all kinds of seemingly meaningless abbreviations and “shortcuts” which are great for simplifying and speeding up the conversation… if you know what they mean!

I found this helpful guide on the internet , so I thought I would pass it along.

CW Abbreviation Guide

Enjoy!
