Start the new year out by coming out to the park to play ham radio – QRP style!

The weather should be nice, not too cool or hot and plenty of fresh air. The trees are tall and just waiting for someone to hang wire from those branches.

We will start with a breakfast and a lot of chatter at the Cracker Barrel in Sanford, FL at 0730. Bring your new toys and show them off to the gang.

About 0900 we should be setting up in Sylvan Lake Park. We normally are in Picnic Area A unless it is reserved. If it is not available cruise Picnic Area B or C and you’ll probably see our cars with antennas and ham radio license plates.

On 29 December 2014, one of our regular attenders, Keith Collins WB1GGJ became a silent key. We will remember his smiling face, and willingness to help launch and hoist antennas. Keith always was in touch with a wide group of QRP manufacturers and kept us up on the state of the art and new rigs. A memorial service will be held and details are below:
