Walt…Can You Hear Me Now?

Cooler and hopefully drier weather is on the way! Fall in Central Florida provides a great outdoor experience for portable QRP operations. Dust off the gear that’s been sitting around waiting for better weather and come out for some fun and ham radio with us. Here’s a couple of our gang in action last month at Sylvan Lake Park.

Our outing starts with breakfast and windy conversations about our hobby and solutions to world problems. Join us a Cracker Barrel in Sanford, FL Saturday 10/28/2017 at 0730 EDT. When we’re done bloviating, we’re normally out at our preferred location in Picnic Area A, Pavilion 2 near the lake in Sylvan Lake Park. If we get a big turnout or that spot is reserved, we spread out into other picnic areas so watch for our cars and antennas to find us.

We normally have a variety of gear, and if you don’t bring your radio but have a license and want to join the fun, we normally are pretty good at sharing a turn at the key. We welcome all modes and only ask that if you want to run QRO you spread out a bit to avoid damaging someone’s rig. We love homebrew and FrankenRadios that show up and we even have Walter’s latest creations on display from time to time. Watchin Walter

The park is a good place for younger members of your family to get outdoors. There are restrooms and playgrounds close by too.

Hope you’ll join us!
