Ever since EME the sky is no longer the limit for radio communication. Someday MEM will be the thing to try, but not until Hams populate the moon. 🙂
A New Approach To Field Day
|Fred reviewed the plans for this year’s field day.|
Things will be a little different this year at field day. A committee, headed by Fred, has been formed to manage the various aspects of this three day event. This includes help with scheduling operators, food preparation, antenna and radio selection, as well as the all important, though much less exciting set up, cleanup, and tear down. In addition to Fred, other team members include Bob Doherty and Jim Stewart on scheduling, Patrick on food, Bill Johnson on setup, cleanup, and tear down. Each team member will be looking for volunteers to assist them.
We are especially encouraging new members to get involved. And, leading the way by example…

Mom helped too, but the photographer was on the other end of the table
she was helping to move. Our club needs more of this kind of involvement.

Bresse is the new amateur radio coordinator for the Bike MS Citrus Tour starting this year and had previously been the SAG vehicle coordinator for a number of years.
For those who missed Techcon, once again, Darrell did an outstanding job of lining up speakers to meet just about everyone’s interest.
