2016 N4G is Here!
N4G, GARA’s annual special event station commemorating the Battle of Guilford Courthouse in the American Revolutionary War, is ready for action. If you’re not already involved, it’s not too late. N4G organizers and volunteers will be at Tannenbaum Park at the corner of Battleground Avenue and New Garden Road starting at 1:00pm on Friday, March 11 to setup the station, and then again beginning at 9:00am on Saturday, March 12 and running continuously until the afternoon of Sunday, March 13. Come out at any time to help setup or to operate the station- rain or shine, day or night. No license is needed as licensed amateurs will be on site, so you could have your very first international contact on this extraordinary weekend! It’s the perfect time for non-hams to discover the fun and intrigue of talking with other like-minded people in other countries, or around our very own.
Also, due to the popularity of the ARRL’s National Parks on the Air (NPOTA) event this year, interest in N4G should be higher than ever. This event will activate Guilford Courthouse National Military Park as unit MP04 which means that there should be plenty of HF pileups to work.
