From time to time I've put things in the CMRA newsletter from the ARRL Mo
Section News. Since it came today, I thought I'd share it with the group so
you can see what it is, if you're not already subscribed to it.

Do you think it should be posted here each month, or should it be left up to
individual members to subscribe if they want this info?

I want to encourage all those that enjoy operating in contests
to mark their calendars for April 2 and 3, 2011. Those are the dates of
the Missouri QSO party that’s sponsored by the Boeing Employees
Amateur Radio Society of St. Louis. To get the rules and other
information go to http://w0ma.org/mo_qso_party.htm and at the bottom of
the page click on the rules link.

I had the pleasure of visiting with Jerry Gentry, WAØH who
lives in Springfield, MO, at the OMAR Hamfest last month. He told me
about the latest version of the logging program he had written called
MicroLog. Jerry has just upgraded his MicroLog making sure that it can
run under most Microsoft operating systems and he has added several new
features to earlier versions. MicroLog can be used to assist operators
who want to keep track of contacts and in addition it will keep track
of records for awards like WAS, DXCC, Counties, 10 x 10, IOTA and about
half-dozen other awards. One of the features of the program I like is a
built in database for U.S. Amateur Radio ops. FYI, Jerry’s website
is www.wa0h.com .


North Kansas City Hamfest was held on January 15, 2011 in

were well attended and there were several major Amateur Radio vendors

On January 29, 2011 the St. Louis & Suburban Radio Club

job of hosting this year’s event. MO SM Dale Bagley, KØKY was
