After recently learning the the Association has not approved the Sports Pavilion area open for Club activities, we have decided to participate in Field Day from our individual homes. The ARRL has approved this manner of logging contacts and submitting them under the Club’s name for aggregate credit. We hope everyone stays safe and has fun making as many contacts as possible. Further information can be found by clicking on the below link.

The LHARG will once again be at the Annual Lifestyle Expo in Orchard Creek Lodge on February 25, 2020 between 10:00 AM and 1:00 PM. Come over and meet us and we’ll be happy to show you some of the “ins and outs” of our fantastic hobby.
According to all the participant, our first annual field day was a huge success. Here are some photos:

Though not shown in the photos other ARG members provided support by loaning equipment, bring donuts and pizza and keeping the coffee pot perking. They also provided the visitors’ tours and answered questions. Public outreach was most satisfying.
Jim operated the forth station but I did not get a photo of him this year. However, my wife Ellen got a great shot of his portable station.
