Outdoor QRP Outing

Sat. 9 July , 2011

0730 Cracker Barrel, Sanford, FL (Map)

0900 Sylvan Lake Park, Sanford, FL (Map)

It is summer for sure… Field Day is always a good marker to remind us to get outdoors and operate. We visited a couple FD sites in South and West Florida, in Naples and up at Ft De Soto Park on the ocean. Here’s a couple photos of the outdoor action and a shot of a 10m groundplane connector that one of the guys homebrewed!

Here's a good FD location just off the shoreline

We start with breakfast and show n tell so bring your latest homebrew project or new toy to show off. After breakfast we’re off to the park to operate a bit so if you prefer, skip breakfast and join us at the park… normally we are in Picnic area A or B… just follow the signs and look for antennas and vanity license plates to find us.
