Winter Field Day 2022 is Moving inside!

Since the forecast is for temperatures this weekend in the high 40s and low 50s during the day and to be 44 overnight with 20 mph winds, the decision was made to move the operating positions inside the Fire Training Center.

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). The now annual combined Winter Field Day effort between the Clearwater ARS, St. Petersburg ARC and Upper Pinellas ARC took place the weekend of January 25 at the Clearwater Fire Training Center.

Our friends in the north, the Upper Pinellas Amateur Radio Club, have for a long time done a monthly foray into a local park called UPARC in the Park. This is to setup radios/antennas and just get together for some outdoor fun. Since we all enjoy getting together at the “Field Days” with UPARC and CARS, we decided to do a joint Radio Clubs in the Park.  On September 21, 2019, at Eagle Lake Park in Largo, we invite everyone to
