Drop your wife off at the mall for early shopping bargains and join us for breakfast before we play radio in the park!

We start with breakfast and Cracker Barrel in Sanford, FL at 0730 EST. This is show n tell time and lots of world problems get solved too. Bring your latest gear purchase or creation and show it off to the gang. About 0900 EST we should be setting up in Sylvan Lake Park down by the lake in Picnic Area A (if it is not reserved). If you don’t see us there, check the other two picnic areas and watch for our cars with Amateur Radio tags and antennas.

We enjoy sharing ideas on QRP portable rigs, antennas and accessories. We mostly can be found near CW and SSB QRP frequencies on 80, 40, 30, and 20meters unless the higher bands are open!

You never know who or what might show up, and we have a good time whether we make many QSO’s or not! If you don’t have a rig, but have a license, we’ll share a key or possibly a mic with ya. So don’t be shy… come out and play radio in a nice quiet outdoor setting.

Fall temps are finally showing up! This is the beginning of comfortable outdoor outings. You can join us for breakfast Saturday 10/27/2018 at 0730 in the Cracker Barrel in Sanford, play radio at Sylvan Lake Park and still be home in time for college football kickoffs. So what is stopping you? We will let you share an antenna, or take a turn on our gear if you’re a licensed ham. Don’t let lack of a rig suitable for portable low power ops keep ya at home.

Check out this link for a chuckle! We even have some old coots giving bad advice at our breakfast and park times to entertain you if hf propagation isn’t too good. Best of all, we don’t charge for bad advice!

It is still hurricane season with lousy HF propagation, frequent thunderstorms, and humongous bugs to bug us. So why do we do it?

BECAUSE WE LOVE PLAYING HAM RADIO IN THE OUTDOORS!

So once again we will start our outing at 0730 EDT at the Cracker Barrel, Sanford, FL. This is show ‘n tell and outrageous braggin’ time and we solve all the world’s biggest problems over a hot breakfast and copious amounts of coffee. About 0900 we should be setting up at Sylvan Lake Park in picnic area A and the small pavilion by the lake if it is not reserved.

So if you don’t like to eat breakfast and hear all the latest chatter, come on out to the park and join the fun. We have a variety of antennas, gear, and accessories and most of the time if you are a licensed ham, you can even take a turn at the key or mic if ya ask real nice like.

Look forward to seeing you swing by and having an eyeball QSO.
