Hot August Go-Box Nigt

August 23rd Club meeting @ 7:15pm

If you have a go-box or portable radio setup this is the night to bring it to the meeting and show it off.  If you want to build your own go-box this is the perfect night to go and get some good ideas.  Even if your project is not complete you can bring it and show it off.  

This is Snickers the cat who likes to lay in front of the radios during the ARES and Club nets.  She also can lay on the log sheet when she wants more atention.

Once again the club participated in another successful ARRL Field Day Event.  We worked as an 8A station in the Sacramento Valley (SV).   The weather was great and band conditoins were not too bad.  Thanks to all who came up to help and participate.  Here are a few pictures that were taken at the even.  I'll post our scores when I get them.
