Field day is 10 days away. The Gulf Coast Amateur Radio Club is having their Field day at the clubhouse this year. You are invited to attend this event. Saturday June 23rd at noon we start getting it rolling. This event runs for 24 hours. So if you can not make it during the day we will be operating FD all night. The event is over at 2pm Sunday.
Field Day is the perfect opportunity for the some of the newer Hams to get on the air and operate HF. You do not need to be experienced to get on. Part of the fun is learning how to communicate and call CQ Field day. If you are a Tech then you get to go on ALL HF bands under the club call.
We will be having food and refreshments at the clubhouse. Burger and hot dogs on Saturday afternoon. Breakfast in the morning, etc. See website for schedule.
Potluck on Saturday night . If you could bring a crock pot with your favorite meal in it to share.
Hope to see everyone there.

Articles for newsletter

We want to hear from you. Calling  for Articles to go in club newsletter

We are always looking for articles to publish in the newsletter. Topics should apply to Amateur Radio, or other closely-related topics. Submissions may be edited for grammar, content, or length; however, that is usually pretty rare. The deadline for submissions is the 25th of each month; however, submissions received after the deadline will be considered. If a late entry doesn’t make it in the current month, it may be used in the following month.

It does not have to be written. Do you have some pictures that other hams would like to see. Send them in.
