SVRC Summer Picnic and Unofficial Field Day
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.
