Want to become active on HF? This is the meeting you need to attend.
October and November are truly sweet spots for HF radio propagation in the calendar year. That is why so many contests and other activities ramp up in October and November. BARS “Get on the Air” project encourages members to become more active on HF or perhaps get on for the very first time.
