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.

The ARES Group held its Monday net on April 30th at the QTH of KE6GLA. At the meeting we had examples of four go-boxes built by the ARES members.   We plan on bringing the boxes to a future club meeting for show and tell.  Start working on yours. The boxes below are from KD6KNA, KE6GLA, KK6EGM, and W6CK.
