We have a long history of our monthly outings. Never know who or how many will show up, but we always enjoy the variety and get a lot of the world’s problems solved over breakfast. Come out and join us in the fun! Saturday August 24, 2019 is the date!

We start with breakfast at 0730 local time at the Cracker Barrel, Sanford, FL just off the I-4 / SR46 exit. This is where deep conversation, bragging and show n tell of new gadgets is the theme. It is a good way to start the day. Around 0900 you’ll find us setting up gear a Picnic Area A at Sylvan Lake Park. If that area has been reserved, we’ll either be at Area B or C, but 95% of the time we don’t have a problem staying at our normal site. Watch for soccer families and walkers as you enter the park please.

Let us hear your stories of the Flight of the Bumblebee contest and if you got out on Sunday 8/18 for the Skeeter Hunt (197 registered ops so far) we’d love to hear how things went!

While propagation has been not the best, we still manage to make contacts on CW and a few digital signals get out. Walt is normally doing DSB or SSB check-ins to his favorite nets so QRP still works.

See ya’ in the park!
