This is the time of year when we can really enjoy the spring weather! The bands are waking up and at times are open for some DX action. Dust off your gear and come play radio in the park. Although Sylvan Lake Park is not part of POTA, you make contacts with other POTA and SOTA stations if that is something you want to do. Sylvan Lake Park is RF quiet Higher HF bands are experiencing good conditions at times so it is possible to try out those WARC and other frequencies and modes you haven’t experienced.
Normally we operate until noon, but feel free to stay longer if you’re having fun!
QRP or max 15 watts requested to avoid rig damage due to proximity to other stations
Come learn from one another and enjoy the outdoors
We welcome you to come learn how QRP portable works! Our group enjoys helping new ops and others that are interested in the joy of ham radio in the great outdoors! Bring a copy of your license if you want to operate but don’t have gear. We can share a seat at the controls!
We’re into the good weather part of the year again. Overall, the bands seem to be slowly improving despite the down days here and there. So it is a great time to break out of the house and head to the park. Check out your new toys from Hamcation or Stuart FL hamfest.
Please watch for the kids and traffic now that soccer season is back in action. With road construction some of the traffic patterns have changed if you haven’t been out to Sylvan Lake Park for bit, you will want to watch as normal landmarks to the turn have moved or no longer posted.
