President’s February Newsletter and Meeting Announcement

Winter is Holding On

Since the groundhog saw his shadow, we are going to have six more weeks of Winter. However, we have some things on our side. The days are getting longer, 80 and 160 meters are still good, and we had a very successful Winter Field Day.

Winter Field Day

Winter Field Day weekend turned out to be a very moderate winter weekend. The sun was shining, there was no snow on the ground, and the temperatures were very reasonable. We made over 600 contacts and even had a satellite contact!

Some other highlights:

We used the trailer for two of the three radios.

We had a visit from a local boy scout troop.

And we ran into the night on Saturday, stopping around 9 PM, and continued on Sunday morning.
