The Summer RaDAR-Contest is July 26th

The Summer (Northern Hemisphere) Rapid Deployment Amateur Radio (RaDAR)-America Contest is hereby announced - due to popular request - for July 26th, 2014 starting at 14:00 UTC and ending at 18:00 UTC. Canadian and Northern USA hams can take advantage of their summer weather. All hams in any locations are welcome to participate. Be safe!

All rules from prior announcement apply as posted at this link.

I will be challenged by the summer heat here in Florida, but I plan to participate. I may dial it back to fixed portable or moving by vehicle rather than pedestrian mobile. The planning is a fun part of the RaDAR experience. There also will be RaDAR contests in November and October. Those are great weather dates here in Northwest Florida.

RaDAR originated in South Africa headed up by Eddie ZS6BNE. It has spread to the Americas with the efforts of Marcus NX5MK. There is a growing worldwide participation. Please visit the RaDAR Community on Google+.
