The DARC is looking for volunteers to help out at the 2019 Dallas YMCA Turkey Trot! Please don’t forget to sign up—and remember that beginners are welcome.

Remember that your ballot for our West Gulf Division director, our representative on the ARRL’s board, must be received not later than November 15th, 2019. If you’re an ARRL member, please make your choice and send your ballot in.

At our next DARC meeting, Tuesday, November 5th, Steve Lott, KG5VK, our ARRL NTX section manager, will give an update on the progress and programs going on in our section this year. Your public service officer Randy Patterson, KE5JIT, will also speak about Turkey Trot, answer any questions you might have, and sign up volunteers.

The contest calendar this weekend is almost empty…because all the little fish have gotten out of the way for one whale of a contest! The CQ World-Wide DX contest SSB weekend is going on right now. Get on the air and give it a try, and you’ll be glad you did.
