FIELD DAY 2015 June 27th-28th


Field day is about upon us, and its not to late to get involved. Deemed one of the world's largest days for radio communication, it is a great time to dust off the generator, batteries and solar cells, wind generators and any other means to run your gear in less than ideal conditions.


Get out into a public place, that could be your local park, historical site, or even your front yard.  Show people what it is all about.  And remember to be safe when putting up antennas.  LOOK UP!!!..LOOK UP!!!  LOOK UP!!!!


I will be making the rounds, just never know what QTH I will show up and visit.


AND MY APOLOGIES TO THE SECTION...  I had just recently moved and when we did, I dropped my internet carrier which I have had for the past 29 years.  Without realizing that my and .net emails were forwarded to the aforementioned email address which is no longer current.


Until I get with the ARRL technical department and rectify the situation, direct all emails to

These are Amateur Radio Operators who are ill and need our support. Please send get well cards or QSL cards with your best wishes on them as they recover from their illnesses or surgeries. I will post along with their names what they are recovering from only with the permission of the families or the member themselves.


While we celebrate the friends that they were, it is with sadness that we recognize the loss of these hams from our fold.
