K8TGR - On the Air for November Sweeps

Some club members got together this November and thought they would give it a go for the ARRL November Sweeps contest.

We have some issues with interference back in our HAM Room, so we moved up into the commons area and ran some antennas out to the lights from the front of the school. This really opened up the bands for us.

Here is B. Mekker giving a go at trying to make a QSO.

We had a pretty good time on the air and the end result was 101 new QSO contacts for the club. This has been our longest and best session at one given time so far.
