FOBB and Skeeter Hunt are over now! Car problems and wx kept me tied up and I didn’t get to play radio for the FOBB this year. Rain and lightning make contesting in the great outdoors of Central FL very interesting! I managed about 70 minutes in the Skeeter Hunt but only got 5 QSO’s with poor band condx and Murphy working on my antenna connector. So how did you do?

You get your chance to brag at our breakfast gathering at Cracker Barrel in Sanford, FL at 0730 on Saturday 26 August 2017. New gear, toys or trophies are fair game for braggin’ rights. Bring ’em on!

Around 0900 we should be setting up portable gear in Sylvan Lake Park on SR 46 about 5 miles west of I-4. We’ll be in picnic area A in one of the 2 pavilions unless it has been reserved. So watch for our antenna laden vehicles and amateur radio license tags in the other 2 picnic areas if we’re not in our usual spot.

Come on out and play radio in the park!
