Badger Contesters Looking for New Members

   10:45am Sunday

   This is a reprint of a post I made back on Jan. 19, 2013.

   I am a Badger Contester and I encourage you to join.  If you have even a mild interest in doing more on VHF/UHF, you should join.  The BC’ers are a low-key, low-stress outfit.  No dues, no formal meetings.  There’s one or two (voluntary) meet-ups at Milwaukee-area hamfests each year, plus the annual BC’ers pizza party at a hotel suite the weekend of AES Superfest.  (usually the first weekend in April)   
  I’m a Badger Contester so I can contribute my VHF contest scores toward the club effort.  
  The BC’ers also have an email reflector that comes alive at times, mostly around contests.  It’s a good way to stay connected.  

   The BC website is at  I’d especially like you to click on this link:  That link graphically shows the BC’ers 175-mile circle.  You will notice this circle extends into N ILL, W MI, NE IA and far SE MN, along with parts of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.   (EDIT — this content added on May 5th, 2013 — My understanding is if you rove in part of this circle, you may be eligible to contribute your score to the BC group effort.  Read the ARRL rules carefully or ask a BC rover like W9FZ, who will be happy to help.)
   I extend an invitation to anyone reading this post who lives in that circle to join the Badger Contesters.  
   To join, follow the directions once you click on the “membership” link on the left side of the BC website.
