Harvard Wireless Club To Operate ARRL Phone Sweepstakes

HWC shieldThe Harvard Wireless Club will operate in the ARRL November Sweepstakes (Phone) Contest November 19-21, competing for the Collegiate Championship Combined Trophy, according to HWC’s Clayton Nall, AA9RB.

“Participation by other clubs was light on the CW side this year, so we should have a very good shot at capturing at least third place in the combined event, regardless of the number of schools that come out for the phone portion,” writes Nall.

AA9RB is recruiting HWC operators for multiple shifts between 4 p.m. Saturday and 10 p.m. Sunday. “We’ll be operating with a check of ’12’–this seems to require fewer repeats than ’09,'” he adds.
