11. NVIS Day 28 April 2018

The Ohio ARES Section Emergency Coordinator has announced that the 2018 NVIS Day will be Saturday, April 28, 2018 from 10 AM until 4 PM Eastern Daylight Time. 

NVIS Day encourages the use of Near Vertical Incident Scattering techniques and antennas for amateur radio communications, especially during emergencies.  NVIS communications are for shorter distances than other techniques, and are often subject to less interference from distant stations.

Participants are requested to limit transmit power to 100 watts for comparison purposes.  For further information, go to this web page: http://arrl-ohio.org/SEC/nvis.html .
