Upcoming Event Details

W7PXL Holiday Lights Rally Net

  • Saturday 12/18 7:00pm to 9:00pm
  • Sunday 12/19 7:00pm to 9:00pm

The net exists to spread holiday cheer among the ham operator community. After you check in, you hop in your car with your family and drive around town to see the holiday lights. NORAD will guide you to the best spots, and we ask that you break the net when you find something that others should see. Don’t forget the hot chocolate.

During the Holiday Lights Rally Net, NORAD will share ham trivia, stories, and maybe even a visit by Santa’s elves. We’ll have easy Morse code decoding contests and virtual white elephant gifts will be given out over the air to everyone.

Between now and 12/18 I’m seeking volunteers to help scout out good locations in Eugene/Springfield to see holiday lighting. Please reply to me with specific addresses of locations you think NORAD should know about. If you want to be an elf, please let me know.

A big thank you to KJ7USS Dave, KJ7JDO Barbara, and KJ7MQA Chris for stepping forward to help.
