    The 2021 Bry Carling AF4K Memorial Novice Rig Roundup kicks off this weekend, March 6, 00:00 UTC, and will run through 23:59 UTC, March 21.

    Each March we get together on air with our older and homebrewed Novice-style rigs and see how many other Novice stations we can work. Scores are reported, but mostly, it's just a relaxed week of scratching out contacts with 75 watts input and crystal frequency control.

    All are welcome to participate. Any rig is welcome, although we think it's a lot more fun if you have a vintage rig or two to dive in with.

    This is the seventh annual event, and unfortunately, the first one without our founder Bry AF4K, so we will be remembering Bry throughout the week. Bry and his buddy Gary WD4NKA, came up with the idea of getting on the air under the restraints of older Novice licenses, and make contacts with like-minded friends. There's still a lot of fun to be had with 75 watts input and a crystal controlled frequency! Please consider joingin us beginning this weekend!
