Club: Order of Boiled Owls of New York

Comments: Too much going on this weekend…. plus Yankee game..
Stayed off of 20 and 15 as there was wall to wall DX.. Got some more PJ band/modes.
Nice to hear so many OWLS. Worked KS2G, N2YBB, N2FF, W2LK, NA2M and K2QMF, plus lots of locals. Did not do any digital as the JARTS RTTY was active.

A live ham radio station will be operating and visitors will be able to experience ham radio communications firsthand by getting “on the air”. There will also be a session in the late afternoon for those who would like to take a Federal Communications Commission (FCC) exam to become a “ham” radio operator.

HRU 2011 is a cooperative effort between radio clubs and related organizations in the New York City – Long Island area. CERT, the Salvation Army, National Weather Service, Friends of
