FIELD DAY June 25, 26 2022
Purpose: Field Day is an opportunity to learn how to set up and operate ham radio equipment under simulated emergency conditions - we take the equipment to an unprepared location, set it up and operate it. You can also operate as if it's a contest where you make as many contacts as possible in the allowed time but that's really optional.
LARK also has a family member BBQ on Saturday night where we meet and catch up with friends.
The sunspot cycle is getting much better. We'll try all frequencies available and see what happens.
Location: to be announced
