Get Ready for the Spring 2024 RaDAR Rally

RaDAR is Rapid Deployment Amateur Radio. Eddie Leighton ZS6BNE in South Africa conceived the RaDAR concept. The RaDAR Rally adds movement to portable operating with a time constraint. The objective: Use your ham radio knowledge, portable equipment, and physical skills to challenge yourself during an unforgettable four-hour experience. The four-hour duration creates an urgency that demands optimized equipment and operating strategies. When: The first Saturday of April and November. Choose four hours during the UTC day. The following Sunday is a backup date if Saturday doesn't work for you. The next RaDAR Rally is April 6th, 2024. Register at www.radarrally.info.
