We’re going to go out and try to stir up some QSO’s to show how it is done! Come join us Saturday July 22, 2017!

We will meet at 0730 at Cracker Barrel in Sanford, FL for breakfast and show n tell (bragging). Around 0900 we will be setting up in Sylvan Lake Park. Normally we are in Picnic area A beside the lake unless someone has reserved it. So load up your gear or come out and share ours for a bit if you have your license to operate.

We enjoy having those interested in low power (QRP) amateur radio especially portable in the outdoors. Since 2009 we have been gathering and stirring up the air waves with our little radios. Lots of ideas and helpful tips if you are wanting to know what gear is useful and how to hang wire HIGH in the tall trees.

This is good practice for the upcoming Flight of the Bumblebees QRP on air contest on July 30th. Usually over 100 Bumblebees (portable ops) gather to make contacts in this short contest. Next month is the Skeeter Hunt and many of us enjoy this annual event. So come tune up your ears and gear. It’s summer in the park and time to play ham radio.
