We’ve got several events in the works, please make plans to join us!
At our March meeting, we’ll discuss various resources we have available including our new website. We’ll discuss the SHARES program we are a part of. Amateur radio license testing will be available following the meeting.
Curious how to send emails over the air without the internet? This event is for you! We’ll have several stations setup on HF, VHF, and UHF to help you understand how to send emails with Winlink. Have some gear you’d like to sell? Great! We’ll also have a free tailgater event if you’d like to setup or browse. This event isn’t affiliated with any club or group and is open to EVERYONE! Ham license testing will also be available at 9:00AM. Thanks to Bob-W5CL for allowing us the use of his space and the Milton Amateur Radio Club for providing the license testing.
Our May meeting will primarily be for those that have or are willing to work at a shelter during an activation. We will walk through the process of picking up the gear, setting up at the shelter, providing reports, and finally securing from deployment.
Amateur radio license testing will be available at 10:30AM. If testing, please bring a photo ID and cash for the exam ($10). If upgrading, please bring a signed official copy of your existing license
Field Day is ham radio’s open house. Every June, more than 40,000 hams throughout North America set up temporary transmitting stations in public places to demonstrate ham radio’s science, skill and service to our communities and our nation. It combines public service, emergency preparedness, community outreach, and technical skills all in a single event. Field Day has been an annual event since 1933, and remains the most popular event in ham radio.
