We had enjoyed a successful field day again this year – operating from the foggy, foggy shore of Lake Michigan. Thanks to Mike, KC9HQV for showing us how to set up a UHF/VHF station in emergency power situations, APRS demo and the use of packet radio. We ran 20m and 40m with a little time spent on 15m at the end of the day. ARES.RACES members and guests finished off the day with a potluck meal. Thanks to everyone who brought a dish to pass, and those who showed up early to set up the radios/antennas. Special thanks again to Travis KB9YRC for allowing us to use the Red Cross RV.
Don’t forget nets run every OTHER week after Field Day. Our next meeting will be Monday, September 8 – weekly nets will begin again on September 15.
Next Ham Breakfast is scheduled for Saturday August 23. Contact Fred W6BSF if you’re attending.
Have a radio-active summer!
