MORA Annual Chili Cookoff

So you think you can cook up a mean pot of chili? Well, why not put your recipe to the test during MORA's Annual Chili Cookoff!

MORA's Annual Chili Cookoff takes place in January - right in the middle of winter when a good bowl of chili goes best. The Cookoff pits MORA's best chili recipes against each other to see who can cook up the best batch. Each recipe is sampled, then voted on by those in attendance.

MORA On The Air

ARRL Field Day

The Mora Open Repeater Association is a regular participant in Amateur Radio's biggest on-air operating event of the year - Field Day.

This event is sponsored by the American Radio Relay League and always takes place during the last full weekend in June.

While many Ham Radio clubs treat Field Day like a contest, MORA has always emphasized the public service and training aspects of this event, and by making this special weekend activity as enjoyable as possible is top priority.

Besides the all important Field Day on-air operations, we hold training seminars, tours for visitors, and we have a pot luck picnic on Saturday afternoon.

MORA's Field Day is always presented at an accessable public venue to allow visitors to see and learn first hand about Ham Radio field operations.

Field Day 2018 - Updated August 5th 2018

MORA participated in ARRL Field Day 2018, operating at the Kanabec County Fairgrounds in Mora on Saturday June 23rd and Sunday June 24th. 

MORA finished with a preliminary total of 1898 points, our second highest total since records were being kept.

The final official results will be published in the December 2018 edition of QST.

The Minnesota QSO Party

The Minnesota QSO Party is an annual on-air operating event sponsored by the Minnesota Wireless Association, and always takes place on the first Saturday in February.

The 20th Anniversary event took place on Saturday February 3rd 2018, during which four of MORA's members were on the air representing three area counties. KØYR operated with Special Call Sign KØY in Pine County, and NØOK operated with Special Call Sign NØK in Mille Lacs County. NØRTY and KJ9W operated in Kanabec County with their own call signs. 

A proposal will soon be presented to the membership to measure possible interest in participating in the QSO Party as a group during next year's event.

Sideband On Two - 144.240 MHz

There is more to two meters than FM and repeaters, and the Mora Open Repeater Association is doing something about it by launching Two Meter Sideband Evening Roundtables on [or near] 144.240 MHz [USB]. That frequency should be easy to remember, since it is exactly three MHz down from our repeater frequency.

If you have a two meter radio with sideband capability, then join us for some good old fashioned relaxing roundtable style ragchewing, just like the ones down on the HF bands! There is no net control, and anyone can start the session. Just simply announce your call sign on the air and listen for an answer.

For the time being, Sideband On Two Evening Roundtable sessions have been scheduled only on the first and third Tuesday Evenings of the month immediately following EMESNET. Depending on how this experiment goes we could schedule more sessions, or perhaps add CW practice at some point!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

EMESNET - 147.240 MHz & 146.565 MHz

Kanabec County Skywarn Net - 147.240 MHz
