Outing Saturday 22 August 2015

We’re having a blast outside playing with our low-power ham radios! Let’s do it again and bring along a friend.

Curious? If you don’t have a rig or antenna for portable ops, come out and see some ways to get set up. We are willing to let you get on the air and try your hand with our rigs too.

Here’s a couple action shots from our July outing:

What is the SWR now?


We start with breakfast at Cracker Barrel Sanford, FL at 0730. Come meet some of the ops, share your latest kit or homebrew rig and swap stories.

About 0900 you’ll find us setting up at Sylvan Lake Park. Unless it has been reserved, we will be in pavilion 2 in Picnic Area A. Follow the links and look for our antennas, license tags and other ham radio signs of life.

All modes welcome and QRP (10w SSB and 5w CW max output) is the way we radio! Come out and have some fun!
