2016 ARRL Rookie Roundup SSB

ARRL Rookie Roundup Ops

A team of newly licensed members of our club, the Nashua Area Radio Club,
came together to enter the┬*2016 ARRL Rookie Round SSB Contest, using our
club callsign, N1FD.┬*We held a┬*training session at our QTH┬*the weekend
before the contest to allow our operators to learn about contesting and to
become familiar with our station. We put together a training package to
introduce the┬*operator team to contesting in general and to the┬*ARRL Rookie
Roundup.┬*You can view the training package here..
Station Setup for the Contest

We entered the┬*ARRL Rookie Roundup┬*in the┬*Multi-Op, Single Transmitter
category┬*using the clubs┬*N1FD┬*call sign. This gave everyone a chance to
operate in the contest and to contribute to the teams final score.
Fred,┬*AB1OC┬*spent┬*some time setting up and checking out our station ahead
of time. Our operators┬*used the┬*N1MM+ logger┬*and operated using┬*100w of
power on the 20m and 40m bands.

We had a total of 13 Nashua Area Radio Club┬*members who attended the
preparation session and/or operated in the contest. Folks worked as teams
during the contest with one person operating while another person logged.
Our operators┬*had nice pileups┬*to work for a good portion of the contest.
All of our Operators did really well. As you can see and hear from the
linked┬*video, we definitely have some future contest stars in our club!

The table above shows the results of our operations during the 6 hour
contest period. Our team┬*did really well! Of particular note is that they
were able to work 45┬*of the 70┬*available multipliers. It will take some
time for the ARRL to put together the results for everyone in the contest
but we believe that our team did very well.

The results are in and┬*N1FD┬*took first place in the recent ARRL Rookie
Roundup SSB in the Multi-op Category. The┬*N1FD┬*team was also #1 in area one
and #5 overall in the contest. Congratulations to all of our operators the
did a great job operating in the contest. You can find all of the┬*scores
for the contest here.

We are planning to host┬*recently licensed┬*club members again for the┬*ARRL
Rookie Roundup RTTY and the ARRL Rookie Roundup CW┬*contests later this
year. We hope to see many of our operators back again for these contests.

Do you have a contest station? ┬*If so, wed like to encourage to host and
Elmer some new hams┬*and challenge us in the ARRL Rookie Roundup RTTY┬*on
August 21.
