Radio in the park
« on: January 02, 2014, 05:02:43 PM »
I just got off the phone with Dave, one of the main guys at OAUSA, and we're talking about having a day where we set up some hf equipment, play with APRS and otherwise hang out and kick around radio tech info etc.


it's going to be a one day thing. we don't have a location or date yet but I wanted to see if anyone from here would be interested.

**UPDATE**
We'll gather starting about 9:00 am at the south end of Red Hill Park in Rancho Cucamonga, CA on March 15th, 2014

We're looking to set up 2 HF Station with Dipole antennas as well as play with APRS and GPS stuff.
If you would like to see something in particular, please speak up.
If anyone wants to take a ham test, please let me know ahead of time so the proper accommodations can be made.

Come with an open mind, lots of questions and willing to learn.

Outstanding!
There will also be more of an effort keeping sccx posted on oausa events this year. Dave will likely register soon and introduce himself etc.

I don't know my APRS from a hole in the ground, but I would like to join an HF field day.
Thanks, SteeveO
