SVRC Summer Picnic and Unofficial Field Day

Richardson Clubhouse

On July 27, 2019, the SVRC held its summer family picnic and unofficial “Field Day” at Richardson’s Clubhouse near Buffalo Hart.  The event was generally well attended with multiple radios, two dipoles in the trees, a twenty foot car-mounted HF antenna mast, and multiple VHF/UHF verticals on several portable masts.  Even though the conditions were not great, many QSOs were made; many with “Parks on the Air”.  We covered 20/40 meters and had some fun with two-meters and 440.  Roger Whitaker even conducted a Winlink demo. 

Hex Beam - Phase 2 Completed

Memorial day provided a perfect time to complete phase 2 of the SVRC Hex Beam Project.  A large volunteer crew assembled on Monday morning, May 27, to help with the ongoing plan to erect a Rohn tower on the roof of the Red Cross building – home of the SVRC club station.  Thirty donated concrete blocks were taken from the parking lot to the roof where they were installed on the tower base that had been constructed a week earlier.  Then the single section of Rohn tower and rotor were installed on the base.  Only one step remains; installing the Hex Beam on the tower.
