The club had another successful Field Day event on June 22nd and 23rd. The weather was great with highs in the 70's and lows in the 40's. We managed to get eight stations on the air which put us in the 8A class for Sacramento Valley (SV). Everyone had a lot of fun and made a lot of contacts. We shared a potato bar dinner on Saturday evening. If you missed the event this year we will be back next year.
The May club meeting had an excellent turnout despite the rain showers in the area. The main topic of discussion was information about Field Day on June 22 and 23. More information about Field Day will be available on the website soon and updates will be sent via email and passed over the 2m club net on Tuesdays. After the Field Day discussion and a few show and tell items were shared, we enjoyed cookies and root-beer floats and got to socialize before the raffle and going home.
