Is your station ready to establish and maintain high-reliability communication with other stations around Ohio when repeaters, phone, and internet service are impaired?

When infrastructure just isn’t there, HF radio using Near-Vertical Incidence Skywave (NVIS) propagation offers the ability to stay in contact on frequencies of 2–30 MHz for distances of about 30–400 miles.

NVIS Day is the ARRL Ohio Section event to test your NVIS antenna designs and builds. Join us on Saturday, April 25th to show how well amateur radio can keep Ohio communicating! This is not a contest: it’s an event for Ohio stations to operate with other Ohio stations and understand how well they hear and are heard.


Date: Saturday, April 25

Time: Start at 10 A.M., end at 4 P.M.

Power: Up to but no more than 100w

Exchange: six-digit grid, power, and true—measured—signal report

Schedule: This isn’t a contest, so take your time! Try different designs! Have lunch!

Hi gang! Here’s a reminder that NVIS Day 2020 is coming!!  Because of the Covid “stay-at-home” lifestyle we’ve been forced into,  our operating situations are going to be vastly different from before.  First, we’re going to be working individually this year (or in a VERY small, safe group) and we’re probably going to be using our back yards in the majority of installations.  That’s fine- in fact, it’ll be more of a challenge for your individual ability to string up a temporary NVIS antenna and make contacts!!

Here’s the rules:
Saturday April 25,  from 10 AM to 4 PM.  Take a lunch break- call a friend. See how your gang is doing.

Transmit power limit: 100 watts.   Try to stay consistent across your antennas and testing.

80 meters:  SSB Center around 3.920

40 meters: Center around 7.240

Feel free to try 160 and 60 meters.  Try to stay on Channel 3-5 on 60 meters.

Check for OHDEN  on 3.585,   5403.5 (Channel 5)  or 7.046


We multiply the number of contacts by mode,  times the number of counties in that mode.

Your call .   Your county.

Band1:  SSB QSO   x  counties B1 =

Band1:  CW QSO  x counties B1=

Band 2: QSO x counties on B2 =

(and so forth)

                Total score:
Pretty simple.  But it’s all about playing with antennas, not trying to achieve a top score, after all.
