Ham-Com is done, but Field Day 2017 is still to come! We’ll be at the pavilion at  Flag Pole Hill, in Dallas, TX on June 24th and 25th. Set-up starts at 8:15 on Saturday. Join us!

Our lecture and lab event will be held at our Field Day site. We plan to offer several training sessions on how to participate in Field Day and on how to log contacts. Even if you’re a beginner, you’ll become a well-prepared operator.  We’ll have extra-class control operators available, so even if you’re not licensed yet, you’ll be able to get on the air.

Memorial Day 2017 Surprise Net

The March of Time, Henry Sandham

Rather than a “goofy” net, I’d just like to focus on the purpose of Memorial Day. I’ll talk a little about the history of the day, and perhaps about one or two of our National Cemeteries. I hope that you can contribute, too. Is there a sailor, soldier, or flyer that you or your family remembers? Are there any stories you like to tell, or customs that you follow?

Please join us on Monday, May 29th, 2017, at 7:00 PM on the 146.88 repeater.
