Mike Ramos KK4KWZ surprised us with his video skills on our July outing to play ham radio in the park. If you didn’t get to join us, or ever wondered what we do… here is a video showing a couple highlights of our morning in the park.

Thanks for sharing your video talents with us Mike!

Flight of the Bumblebees is tomorrow after church!  CQ BB is a sweet sound on CQ ! See ya’ on the air!

Time has come to get to the woods and play radio!

We are resuming our normal schedule of 4th Saturday of the month outing in the park Saturday, July 26, 2014.

Meet for breakfast at the Cracker Barrel in Sanford, FL at 0730 and bring something for show and tell! Love to hear some SYBO stories!

SYBO last weekend

About 0900 we will be in Sylvan Lake Park setting up. Look for us at Picnic Area A (Left after the soccer fields and follow to the end by the lake) If that area is reserved we’ll fall back on area B, or C. So take a drive and watch for our antennas and license tags.

Come join us get some practice to prepare yourself for the Flight of the Bumblebees outing on Sunday afternoon! I see that 97 Bumblebees are signed up including Jim K4AHO #39, Art WB4MNK #79, Don K3RLL #35, Greg N4KGL #31 and you can still hurry and sign up.  We’ll also be practicing for the SKEETER HUNT the second Sunday in August.

So this is a great time for outdoor QRP action. Try out your new rig, tweak your antenna and join the fun!

Most of our members belong to Amateur Radio Clubs in their areas and will be participating in Field Day which is the same Saturday as our regular monthly outing.

Therefore, our group will NOT be meeting in June

Be sure and get out and support a local club, check out how they are setting up as portable ops and lend a hand! Take some friends along that are not licensed and see if they catch the same bug that we have! We will resume our regular schedule in July–Fourth Saturday–Cracker Barrel in Sanford, FL at 0730…moving to Sylvan Lake Park at 0900 and operating until at least noon weather permitting. Here’s what you miss if you don’t get out and join the fun… April2014_1
