SVARA Contests

2011 ARRL International DX Phone Contest

The SVARA club station at the Red Cross was open Saturday March 5, 2010 from 10 AM until 4 PM for the ARRL International DX Phone contest, but due do flooding conditions at the club station, most time was spent cleaning.  Here are some photos.

Thank you to everyone that came down to help!
