At our meeting on April 20th we’ll finalize our plans for this fun event. It’s sort of a mini-Field Day. There are lots of things to do to make it a success. We’ll need help in the set up of equipment and antennas as well operating and logging. And of course, we’ll need assistance in feeding the hungry crew.
