Aurora Conference

Conference Date: 
After discussions with the Aurora team, a decision has been made to postpone our April 25th Aurora'20 conference to a later date.   The team will continue to monitor the ongoing COVID-19 situation and will be working with our church location to find a future date.  With this postponement there is also a moratorium being placed on collecting club dues .... dues will be collected at a later date. 

Aurora, the largest annual gathering of weak-signal VHF'ers in the Upper Midwest, is the annual gathering of the Northern Lights Radio Society.  These conferences, first hosted by Jon Lieberg, KØFQA began in 1984.
In the morning hours the club runs an out door antenna range from 0900 to 1130.  The morning also allows for socializing, show & tell, and casual demonstrations.  Members are then on their own time for lunch.  The technical programs start at 1300 and typically run until 1700 or 1730.  If you have a weak signal VHF topic that is of interest to you, or that you would like to present on, please contact our Technical Chairman, Jon Platt, W0ZQ (w0zq (at) aol.com).  If a technical presentation is not to your liking, Aurora also features a poster session.
If you have an interest in weak signal VHF please plan on attending Aurora where you will leave re-energized for this exciting aspect of our hobby. 
The 2020 Aurora conference will be held April 25 at the Community of Grace Lutheran Church, 4000 Linden Street, White Bear Lake, MN 55110.  This is near the intersection of Highway 61 with County Road F. Linden Street is a service road for Highway 61.  Full information will be added as we draw nearer to the conference date.
