The month of June is a particularly exciting month in Amateur Ham Radio. Every year, on the last weekend of the month of June, Ham Operators across the country and Canada grab their gear and go outdoors to make as many contacts as possible. As in past years, the Group will be setting up near the Sports Pavilion on Saturday, the 25th in the Morning. Consider coming by before playing Pickleball or Tennis and saying hi to us. We are happy to show you our equipment and explain Ham Radio in a modern, digital era. Under our licensed supervision, Grandkids can get on the air as well. Meetings are held at the South Tower every Monday night at 6:30 PM. Our club conducts a weekly radio network at 7:00 PM every Monday on the W6LHR Repeater at 147.030 MHz, 167.9 PL.

Field Day 2021 was hot but we accomplished a lot and had fun. Antennas went up early and by 11:00 AM we were on the air. We erected two Verticals and one End Fed Antenna and worked 20, 40 and 15 Meters. Our Banner and Visitor Log In sheets were proudly displayed. Several folks stopped by and information was shared. We had a total of 183 QSO’s (contacts) 56 on SSB and 127 on Digital. Our coverage was widespread, covering 29 States, Canada and Puerto Rico. Our total score of 1,490 is a Club high. Dan’s, KN6DRN, Grandson, Caleb, made his first contact and then another 5! At seven years old, he was very successful and had big smiles throughout.

Field Day 2020 Results
This year’s Field Day was quite different than all past Field Days. Like most Clubs and Groups across the Country, we chose to participate from our homes due to Covid-19 health concerns. Despite the lack of camaraderie and pizza, it was fun and productive. Five of our members made contacts from their home base. A variety of modes, bands and power sources were employed. CW and phone were the main modes and Commercial and Battery power were utilized.
We recorded 143 contacts in 15 different States and 25 different Sections. Two rookie members, Paul KN6DRM and Dan KN6DRN, participating in their first Field Day, recorded a combined contact list of 69 stations. Well done! This was a Field Day to remember with unique circumstances. We look forward to a more traditional event next year when we can all be together.
Field Day 2020 Update
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.
