1500 watts and a Beam…

With apologies to “100 watts and a wire”, why not go big with the SPARC remote club station! For those that may not know, one of the benefits of SPARC membership is access to a great remote station. The station happens to be the SPARC club station we use for contesting. The station is available using the RemoteHams software (free or $10 for an Android app).

Alan will tell us about advances in PCB fabrication now that through-hole components are disappearing. With that we are experiencing greater challenges to test and prototype our electronic circuit ideas. It is just not possible … Click for more

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
