On-air Special Event Stations


The Anoka County Radio club also has two long-standing Special event stations. 



In May, the club operates a special event station celebrating the Minnesota Fishing Opener, often using the 1x1 callsign "N0F" which stands for "No Fish".   We only fish for contacts, but maritime mobile participants are welcomed.  We usually do this in Ham Lake Park, in Ham Lake, MN.     Dates / times are published in QST and we send out custom QSL cards to contacts. 



In October, the club operates a special event station celebrating the city of Anoka being the Halloween Capital of the world.  This is also typically done from a local park, different parks year to year.   The location of this event will be posted on the main website, and the frequencies will be published in QST.  



On-air Contests


We also participate in 1-3 contests per month, as determined by participants.   We have a contest portal that is accessible on the website for all members to see each person's progress during the contest in near real time.   We also have a discord chat link that is live during contests (from the contest portal link) to chat between contest participants.
