Field Day - More Details Coming Soon

The Rio Grande Valley Radio Amateur Club will be having a Field Day February 11th.
Location: Details coming soon

The day is not about making hundreds of contacts, but to associate call signs to new/old friends. The EOC has two stations already but we encourage all participants to bring their rigs, power supplies, coax, and antennas. We will monitor Rio Link and Star Link to assist with directions.


Thanks to David Tenorio for the artwork.
