Summer is almost here and time to think of Field Day again. With the poor band conditions during the middle of the current solar cycle making contacts will be more of a challenge. Hope everyone has great plans for the summer with family and friends.
The Special Event station at the Tall Grass Prairie National Preserve in Strong City was an enjoyable event again this year.
The May 12 - 13 WW1USA event will be sponsored by SFTARC. Sign up information has been sent via email and is available on the club web site. We expect to be using the club trailer for this outdoor event. For all those new hams this is a great opportunity to not only operate but to experience what it is like to be in a pile up or a DX station. There will be many experienced operators from around the KC Metro there to learn from.
Field Day is approaching rapidly. We plan to operate from Ensor Museum site again this year. Come join us for good fun and food.
The club is planning to have a camp fire event at Ensor in July, look for further details.
