The El Dorado County ARC supported the Garden Valley Youth Expo on Sunday, October 15th.  The club has been supporting the Youth Expo for over a decade.   We bring the ARES trailer and raise up the big mast to support the HF antenna.  Inside the trailer we have all the radios buzzing with activity and an APRS demonstration.   We made several contacts on HF to Pennsylvania and Arizona and Texas and had a few visitors stop by.
