2013 VHF Conference on Oct 12-13, 2013 in Moses Lake, WA.

to our PNWVHFS members and enthusiasts:

The board of directors has just informed me they have decided on Oct 12-13, 2013 for the conference in Moses Lake. The reasoning can be summarized as:

  • Oct 12-13 is a long weekend for both U.S. (Columbus Day) and Canada (Thanksgiving Day). This provides extra travel time for everyone.
  • We are in competition for speakers. If we choose Oct 4-6 then we can create a conflict with potential speakers that would then have to choose between the Texas international EME gathering and our conference.
  • Comments have been received and included from directors and members and interested parties around the greater area.

To review, and as a convenient reminder of other calendar events around this one, here are some happenings that are NOT impacted by our choice:

  • Sept 14-16 - ARRL Sept VHF Contest
  • Sept 28-29 - ARRL EME Contest (Microwaves)
  • Oct 4-5 — Texas Six Meter EME Barbecue
  • Oct. 26-27 - ARRL EME Contest (VHF/UHF)

Much more planning is in the works, and we will keep you informed as things develop.

Eric Olson N7EPD, President PNWVHFS
