June 22/23 2019 - ARRL FIELD DAY! New location for us in Oregon City. Max K2MAX has generously offered the use of his 5 acre property for Field Day this year. We will be running our usual 4A category, and hope to be running VHF and GOTA stations as well. We are always looking for more operators to keep bringing in the contacts, especially on CW! Late night relief operators always needed! Come hang out with your friends you know better by voice than sight, get on the air and make some contest contacts, try out the new location and a different antenna layout, and fire up the BBQ - it's going to be another fun year!
