Summer Information – ARRL Field Day


Summer’s here, and this means a few things to consider!

ARRL Field Day is June 28 – 29. W5YD and MagARC will be participating this year once again at Camp Seminole. If you would like to join us, please contact us about it. You can send us an email, a message on Facebook or Twitter.

During the summer, we will not have the W5YD weekly net due to the low numbers of members in town. We will begin the weekly net once the Fall Semester begins. Likewise, the monthly meeting has been suspended.

Have a great summer! 73
