"Ohio NVIS Day"



Keep records of each antenna you’ve tried- take pictures!  We’re interested in compiling which designs are the most successful.  Keep a log of contacts with callsign, county, and if possible antenna description of your contacted station.  We’ll want to know your final count of station contacts.  We do have a form you can print and use, but there is no formal requirement for your log: Cabrillo, spreadsheet, or written summary will work.

Email your contest report to: 

Anchor Stations:

Although you are encouraged to contact as many stations as possible, these Anchor Stations will be on the air for the duration of the event to provide comparative signal reports.   Their locations will be plus/minus QRM or existing nets. Best practice is to move up a bit if the desired frequency is in use.

The Marion County ARES group will compile a listing of the different types of antennas used, and their relative performance. We’ll also look at which stations were able to have the greatest number of counties contacted, and which stations have the highest number of contacts.
