Winter Field Day, January 25th, 2020

You are invited to SBARA's Winter Field Day operation, Saturday January 25th. This year we will be at our usual summer location in Fremont Central Park, the first-right parking lot after entering the park at Sailway Drive and Paseo Padre.

Radio operation will begin at 11am and finish around 4pm. Setup will start about 10am. We will operate 100 watt HF radios on various bands. You are welcome to bring field radios and antenna systems to try out. There will be some limited generator power available; it helps to bring your own extension cord.

The station callsign is KU6S, and we will keep simple paper logsheets for each band. If you are not attending, try finding us on the radio!

Don't have to be a SBARA club member to attend !
