    Contest University

    https://www.contestuniversity.com Take a look in the FILES section for presentations from previous years. Tom Webb (WA9AFM) shared one from 2018 "How to Adapt Your DX Contest Strategies for Low Solar Activity" at the club meeting on January 19, 2019. There are numerous presentations & videos for download.

    Winter Field Day

    until
    https://www.winterfieldday.com/ Not affiliated with ARRL. This is pretty much like ARRL Field Day, except hosted by a different group with a few different rules. You can participate as a home station on commercial power. You just lose access to lots of bonus points. But if you're playing for fun, looking to make some QSO's toward an award, or maybe thinking about test driving a new operating mode (such as FT8 this year), this might be what you're looking for!

    ARRL Rookie Roundup (CW)

    until
    6 hours (from 1800 to 2359 UTC) http://www.arrl.org/rookie-roundup NEW RULES - MORE ROOKIES! • You can be a Rookie if you were first licensed in 2018, 2017 or 2016 - send the year you were first licensed in the exchange. • If you were licensed before 2016 you can also be a Rookie if you made your first Amateur Radio contact during 2018, 2017 or 2016 or if you haven't made any contacts on the contest mode (SSB, CW, or RTTY) before the Rookie Roundup contest, send the current year (2018) in your exchange - either of these reasons qualify you as a Rookie for just one year. • Rookies will attempt to make as many contacts as possible during this 6-hour event. Rookies work everyone - and non-Rookies work only Rookies. This is a great way to try out contesting in an event designed for newcomers.

    All Ham Dinner

    until
    Many years ago, the amateur radio clubs in the Oklahoma City area started an event that is now known as the "All Ham Club Dinner". This dinner allows about 50 hams get together, eat, and communicate with each other. This dinner is held on the third Thursday of January, May, and September at 6:30 pm. (NOTE CORRECTED TIME) The next All Ham Club Dinner will be held Thursday, January 17th, 2019, at 6:30 pm. This dinner will be at the Golden Corral, 1501 SW 74th, (North side of the north service road of I-240) in south Oklahoma City. No RSVP is needed, show up, get your meal, and join the fun in their large banquet room. Thanks es 73, Mark N5HZR President Central Oklahoma Radio Amateurs
