The most recent WGARS club meeting focused on Field Day preparations, and it looks like we'll have an exciting field day! We'll be operating HF Voice, PSK, and code as well as three opportunities to make satellite contacts! We've made a lot of plans, although they are not set in stone, so if you would like to participate and/or contribute to the cause with equipment, food & supplies, or a financial contribution (donate button above and right) we'd love to hear from you!
Starting off, we'll be holding our Field Day at our typical location, utilizing the pavilion beside Fire Station #24 at the intersection of Bankhead Hwy and Northside Drive from 2:00 PM Saturday, June 27th until 5:00 PM Sunday, June 28th. All are welcome, but we are asking those who are night-owls to please volunteer to work the 8pm-8am shift.
We'll be operating a minimum of five radios (five already volunteered by KE4NIA, KK4CTV, N4BWR, and WX4BK). One of these rigs is a little older, so if someone has one to loan/operate for the weekend, please contact us.
We'll have three club antennas and two member HF antennas in the air, courtesy KM4FQI and WD8LQT.Read more: Field Day Preparations Underway - Join Us!
