Members of SPARC, UPARC and CARS came out to Lake Seminole on Saturday March 14 to enjoy the sunshine as well as operating HF and satellite portable.

Winter Field Day 2020

Another Winter Field Day has come and gone (more than a few weeks ago due to my belated report). The weather was mild if not just a tad cold at night (for us Floridians anyway).

Do you like fresh air, food, hanging around with radio buddies?

If you like fresh air, food and hanging around with your radio friends, make the drive to Eagle Lake Park in Largo on September 21st. It is first and foremost a chance to spend time with some friends (new and old), talk radio and maybe see how people do other parts of the hobby you may not see all the time. We were planning on a transmitter hunt and some satellite operations. It is much more low-key than Field Day in that people are ENCOURAGED to bring their own equipmentClick for more
