the PVRC” report, and then John Johnston gave us about a thirty minutes of his career through ham radio contesting... starting in the Frankford club, transitioning through the Aurora Club (anyone remember that entity?), and finally the PVRC and his FCC experiences & conflicts. (I’ve done both gentlemen an injustice with this report, but after-meeting comments reflect this was one of the better programs LARC has experienced, and we thank them both!)

Jim mentioned that the LARC had won the club participation in the MDC QSO-party four years in a row, and then lost interest (our scores were greater than the sum of the other club stations participating.... throwing down the gauntlet?) it is a gentleman’s contest in mid-August, and we plan to be back, and we hope to work some of you PVRCers’

Nat Heatwole, WZ3AR, is re-establishing a Ham club at Guilford College in Greensboro, NC. The club has a Mosley CL-36-M, two old linears, and a couple old transceivers. However, in this modern computer age, Nat is in need of donations of more modern rigs that can handle RTTY and PSK which may entise more members. Of course, donations would be tax deductions. Please email him at nat@AJHeatwole.com.

Barry Thaysen, K3UG, will be operating Armed Forces Day May 11th and 1 2th at AAA3USAIWAR at Ft. Detrick, MD for cross band contacts in SSB and 1 70 Hz 45 baud RTTY. This is the ultimate test of your SPLIT capability to avoid transmitting on the military frequency out-of-band.

The WAE dx contest (WAEDC) in August and September has been added to the 5 Mil award club competition list. More info next issue or http://www.waedc.de.

The holiday dinner will be at the Olive Garden in Vienna on Dec 9th at 6pm; dine at 7pm

20, 10 meters

3. Date: Always the first weekend in June. The 2002 reunion will be June 1, 2, and 3.

4. Suggested Frequencies: CW always 47
kHz up from the bottom of the band (3547,
7047, 14047, 21047, and 28047 kHz). Phone
frequencies are 14247 kHz (14250 as an
alternate) and 28447 kHz on 10 meters.

5. Three contest periods (2002):
1 June: 1400Z - 1800Z
2 June: 0000Z - O500Z & 2200z - 03- O300Z

6. Contest exchange: Serial number, your call, QTH, your call when first joining PVRC, and year joined PVRC.

7. Valid contact: Completed two-way QSOs on any of 7 bands. No crossband or crossmode QSOs permitted.

8. QSO points: Two points for each completed QSO.

9. Multipliers: Total multiplier is the sum of all states, DC, Canadian provinces, and DXCC countries worked. (AK and HI count as a state or a country, not both.) Each multiplier may be counted once, not once per band. Maritime mobile contacts count only for QSO points; not a multiplier. * *

10. Reunion call: CQ PVRC

* * If W3GRF sends a state of PVRC then a rule change is in force and “PVRC” is a state multiplier.

Please send your to the editor (k3di@arrl.net, etc.) by the 1 6th of June to make the Jun/Jly issue. Loags and dupe sheets are not needed. Please send QSOs, Mults, Score. For example:
W6XYZ CA W4XYZ 70

If you work a station that claims to be a member, but is not listed in the roster, please send that exchange information with your score and let us know if that QSO is or is not included in your score. We’ll check and adjust your score, if needed. Soap box is welcomed!

Let’s take a look at the participation of past reunions and who placed in the top five. The following lists the year, number of scores received, and the number of QSOs by the #1 station. The calls are listed in order of finish.
