Spring 2019 XARC Fox Hunt

Greetings,

The XARC Spring Fox Hunt will be held…

  • On Saturday, May 11.
  • We will meet at 9:00AM for registration and instructions.
  • At the Perinton Community Center on Turk Hill Rd.
  • Plan to gather at the north end of the north most parking lot.
  • The hunt will begin at 9:30 am

The hunt will feature multiple 2 meter FoxMitters (hidden transmitters), all on different frequencies. All FoxMitters will be able to be heard from the Community Center parking lot, and will be within a 5 mile radius of the start point.

All you really need is a 2 meter handheld. If this is your first hunt, we can arrange for you to go with a more experienced hunter.

The goal is to have fun. Plan to join the hunters for lunch after the hunt — usually at about 12:30. The location for the lunch will be announced.
See you there…

Regards,
Ned, W2NED

XARC February GENERAL Meeting – CANCELLED

Since our regular meeting date falls on Valentines Day this year, a number of members have indicated they would not be able to attend due to other plans.  Since we had no pressing business and no formal presentation scheduled, and a likely poor turnout, we have decided to cancel the February general meeting.

Our next meeting will be on Thursday March 14th.  Hope to see you all there.

1993 ARRL January VHF Sweepstakes

In the late 80s and much of the 90s, the Rochester VHF Group sponsored a local club competition to spur activity in the ARRL January VHF Sweepstakes contest. XARC participated for several years, and won the local club competition several times, including 3 years in a row, finally retiring the “Rochester Cup” in 1996.

Though doing so well in the local club competition was a highlight, maybe the most impressive feat was winning the ARRL Gavel for the Medium Club Category in 1993. Only 3 clubs outscored us in the Unlimited category, placing us fourth in the country. We had 37 participants, and likely the most serious of our VHF/UHF active members gave their scores to the Rochester VHF Group.

Here is a screen capture of the results in QST from the June 1993 issue:
