Reuben Fetterhoff - WY8C
ARC is now a participating member of the FISTS CW Club. The FISTS
CW Club is an organization for the preservation of ham radio's
beginning - Morse code. It is an organization that continues to
promote the usefulness and fun of CW. In this country we face
antenna restrictions from governmental agencies and Home Owners
Associations. From this dilemma has arisen the "stealth" antenna
designs that work well with CW - especially QRP. The Contest
Section of this page lists the FISTS contests. The club will now
be able to compete against other FISTS clubs. Participants do not
have to be a member of FISTS. The current MCARC members
belonging to FISTS as individuals are:
- Don Perkins - AB8EL
- Reuben Fetterhoff - WY8C
- John Gaynard - K8WDN
- Jason Hissong - N8XE
- Bob Lewis - N8GU
