SBARA entered the 7th Area QSO Party for 2021, and we won First Place in the Multi-Operator, Multi-Transmitter Category! In this category, we were the only entry from California, and the only low-power (below 150 W) entry. With Field Day coming up, it shows what can happen when you try something different!

Mike Fung WA6AWI passed away recently. Mike was an enthusiastic supporter of amateur radio in the East Bay area, in many ways. He was the organizer of SBARA's team of radio volunteers at the Zucchini Festival, and many of us had fun with that activity. He was a member of the Fremont Communication Volunteers, a regular contributor to Tuesday's Tri-City Net, and he worked on the volunteer group's radio equipment and packet stations. He was also a long-time radio operator at Washington Hospital.
Mike was always fun to be around, and we will miss him enormously!
