Save the date!  On Sunday afternoon May 21, 2017 KF5ZBL and KG5EIU will be out at Dreyfus Point at White Rock Lake Park in Dallas TX for Radio In The Park Day.  We plan on meeting at 1pm at Dreyfus Point Park  (32.836591, -96.714532) .   This is an open invite and anybody that wants to enjoy an afternoon in the park is welcome licensed or not.   Will be working out some kinks in go-boxes, AREDN nodes, home-built batteries, solar setups, antennas and of course radios and rigs – all in preparation for Field Day 2017.   This is the same location that the DARC was at for Winter Field Day 2017.  See the map below or look for KF5ZBL or KG5EIU on APRS.  Important – this is a SHINE only event, if there is weather or rain this event will be postponed.
