WM3PEN was first used for an ARRL Convention in Philadelphia in 1976 and now is on the air for HARC events including those honoring Philadelphia's founder, William Penn. HARC has been featured in the ARRL Special Service Club Spotlight, as well as in QST, CQ, and CQ VHF. The Club was awarded a Service Award by the March of Dimes for it's help with the Walk America. Members also help with the Northeast Philadelphia Youth Run. HARC provided communications for the Mayfair-Holmesburg Thanksgiving Parade for over 12 years.

HARC operates and maintains the 146.685 repeater which has been on the air since 1978. From the repeater's main site near center city Philadelphia, the service area has been expanded by adding satellite inputs in Cherry Hill, N.J., Northeast Philadelphia, and Abington, PA in eastern Montgomery County. The repeater serves amateurs in the Philadelphia area as well travelers to and from the shore.

Independence Week Special Event
Original 13 Colonies
June 30 - July 5, 2015

Sponsored by The U.S. Original 13 Colonies Group
with the Holmesburg Amateur Radio Club, Inc.

Members of the Holmesburg Amateur Radio Club, Phil-Mont Mobile Radio Club, Drexel University Amateur Radio Club, University of Pennsylvania Amateur Radio Club , the Philadelphia Digital Radio Association and the Mt. Airy VHF Club (Packrats) will celebrate our independence from the city where independence was declared, Philadelphia, PA. Club members will be operating a special event station using the Club call WM3PEN. Amateur radio stations operating from the original 13 colonies will also be on the air.

The theme for 2015 is the Founders and Patriots of the Republic. WM3PEN will offer a special QSL card featuring the signing of the Declaration of Independence. The 13 Colony Special Event will be offering a special certificate with pictures of Founders and Patriots of the Republic on it.

WM3PEN will participate in the event. When you work WM3PEN make a note on the 13 colony log sheet and you will get an endorsement with the WM3PEN call place on the certificate. WM3PEN Does NOT count for Pennsylvania.

Spotting information: Watch for us on http://DXSummit.fi or http://www.cwfun.org/funspots/us13/frames.html

When you work WM3PEN send an SASE or Green Stamp ($1) with your QSL to WM3PEN. Do NOT send IRCs. DX stations need only send $1. You can also QSL via the bureau. SWLs may send a confirmation of reception to request a QSL card. Simply indicate the stations making contact with WM3PEN, time, frequency, and your receiving equipment. SWL stations should follow the same mailing instructions.

WM3PEN also participates in the Stamps for the Wounded program. Sponsored by The Lions International Stamp Club, Stamps For The Wounded accepts donations of US and foreign stamps. This program helps thousands of patients through clubs and occupational therapy programs in veterans’ hospitals and convalescent centers nationwide.

Stamps for the Wounded accepts any U.S. or foreign stamps that are not torn or damaged. They have also requested each stamp should have at least a quarter-inch margin around the stamp. Do not try to either to peel or steam the stamp off the original envelope. They do not want the common US Forever Flag stamp. 

If you want to participate either place different stamps on your QSL request or if you have other stamps include them with your QSL and the WM3PEN ops will forward them onto the Stamps for the Wounded program.

New this year will be operations on D-STAR. Members of the Philadelphia Digital Radio Association will be operating locally on the K3PDR repeater and connected to Ref 063D from 7 PM - 11 PM Eastern Daylight Time. For D-STAR QSOs to count a radio must be used on both ends of the qso. Operators should give their call, name, and state. In place of a signal report, operators should send the year they first got on D-STAR. DVDongles do not count. QSLs for D-STAR contacts can be sent to the above address. LOTW does not accept D-STAR QSOs. D-STAR QSOs will be uploaded to EQSL a few months after the event.

Any donations to help with printing costs are always appreciated, and can be sent along with your QSL request.

Some operators will be going to their jobs on the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd so operations may be limited at times.


For further information on the WM3PEN operation contact WM3PEN@ARRL.NET

Pennsylvania "67" Challenge

HARC sponsors the Pennsylvania "67" Challenge. This county hunter certificate is open to all amateurs. Hams can use any band or mode to make a 'real time' contact with Pennsylvania's 67 counties. Hams may work towards the Challenge by working 20, 40, 60, or 67 counties and receive a certificate at each of the four levels. Endorsements are available for individual bands or modes. All contacts must be made from the same county.

Besides HF contacts, Bob Josuweit, WA3PZO, explains that repeaters, D-STAR, Echolink, and IRLP modes are valid contacts as long as a radio is used by both operators. Modes that store and forward messages are not considered valid contacts.

QSL cards will include paper or electronic. This will open the Challenge to all hams regardless of license class or type of station.

HARC is encouraging all hams to get on the air. Complete rules and information on both events can be found at the Club's website www.harcnet.org. Questions or comments can be directed to the Club call, WM3PEN at ARRL.NET.

Pennsylvania Charter Day (March 8, 2015) Due to the ARRL Phone DX Contest we have cancelled the Charter Day Special Event Station.

On March 8, HARC will celebrate Pennsylvania's 334th birthday by participating in Charter Day events.

Charter Day is the day King Charles of England granted William Penn a charter for land in the New World to make up for a large debt that the king owed to Penn's father.

William Penn had initially decided to name the land "Sylvania," which in Latin means woods. King Charles II added the prefix Penn to the name in honor of William Penn's father, Admiral Sir William Penn, who had served England as a rear admiral.

Pennsylvania state museums are open for free on Charter Day and it's the one day each year that the Charter is put on display at the state museum in Harrisburg.

WM3PEN (William 3 Penn) will be on the air from 1300Z - 1900Z as band conditions permit. A special QSL card will be offered featuring William Penn.

When you work WM3PEN send an SASE or Green Stamp ($1) with your QSL to WM3PEN. You can also QSL via the bureau. SWLs may send a confirmation of reception to request a QSL card. Simply indicate the stations making contact with WM3PEN, time, frequency, and your receiving equipment. SWL stations should follow the same mailing instructions.
