Dr. Merat AC8EY found this photo of radio club students in days of yore in a pamphlet entitled “A Case for Case” that appears to be from about 1960. Alumni, let us know if you recognize anyone in the photos…
Watch this space for more details, but look for us in The Pink Pig.
The operating period will 2:00 PM Saturday to 2:00 PM Sunday EDT, and we will be building the station and stringing antennas in the trees on Friday. Visitors and helpers for operating the station, keeping the antennas going, cooking, teaching most any radio-related topic you like, schlepping, and even breaking the whole thing down on Sunday afternoon are entirely welcome. Field Day is amateur radio’s open house, come join us! Operate the station, talk into the microphone to amateur radio stations all over the US, Canada, and the world! It’s fun!
We will have an amateur radio exam session, probably Saturday afternoon, so study up and take your license exam then. See our page here on preparing for the test.
Thanks to support from the electrical engineering department, club members Aidan Montare KB3UMD, Skylar Dannhoff KD9JPX and Kristina Collins KD8OXT were able to visit Cal Poly San Luis Obispo for the annual Cubesat Developers Workshop, as well as the first annual Cubesat training course. While there, we also took the opportunity to visit W6BHZ, Cal Poly’s exceptionally active amateur radio club. A grand and very educational time was had by all.
W8EDU made the green box in this year’s Frequency Measurement Test, as well as getting some nice shoutouts in the soapboxes of some other stations: http://fmt.arrl.org/fmtcurresults.php
Enjoyed an eyeball QSO this evening with Anthony KG7YTR from K7UAZ at the University of Arizona. If you’re a ham visiting Cleveland, be sure to stop by. See you on the air!
Works perfectly. Now to find a place to put it…
