Personal Ramblings

ARRL Field Day 2014

Coming soon ... June 28-29!

VBARC setup will be same location this year, CR510 near the causeway. All are welcome!

Field day is a great opportunity for new hams, informal event with lots of time, equipment around to learn new stuff. Tech licensees can try out HF with control operators.


I just realized something today, the problem with knowing how to build something is that you invariably know how to build a better one as soon as you finish!

ARRL Field Day 2013

I participated in this event with the Vero Beach Amateur Radio Club, and had an awesome time for two days and the better share of the night in between. I highly recommend this event for anyone interested in ham radio!

Notes for interested readers (and for myself next year!):

Much appreciation to all who contributed to making the event possible!
