Field Day 2017

We had a splendid Field Day at the Case Farm! Almost 700 contacts, beautiful weather, good food, some excellent lectures and a successful exam session. Thanks and congratulations to all who operated, organized, cooked, cleaned, lofted antennas, and passed exams over the course of the weekend, and a special thanks to Squire Valleevue Farm for hosting us.

Tracking the ISS with NA8SA

On Friday, had a successful test run with the fine folk of NA8SA in preparation for an ARISS contact with the Girl Scouts in a couple of weeks. Beautiful reception of packet transmissions from NASA Glenn. Hopefully the ARISS contact goes as smoothly!
