Field Day 2024

All, Please join us this Saturday and Sunday, 22 and 23 June, as we take to the air waves for Field Day 2024. Set up will begin at 12:00 noon on Saturday at the EMA (where our meeting are held). Plan to be there the entire 27 hours, with a nap of course. There will be plenty of opportunity to get on the air, learn about amateur radio, and fellowship. I will be bringing a grill, burgers, hot dogs and buns for a evening cookout around 5 or 6. Bring your favorite side dish, chips, or drinks. Bring some to share if you like. If you can’t stay and play radio, at least stop by when you have time.

Balloon and Kite Festival

For you early risers come join us for some ham radio fun this Saturday June 8th at 5:30 am. We will have the opportunity to track the balloons if they fly weather permitting using APRS at the Kite & Balloon Festival. We will meeting on the south side of the west campgrounds at the Missouri State Fair on Clarendon Rd. Doc (W3MEB) will begin with a briefing around 6am on what the organizers would like us to do. Even if you do not have APRS this will be a great way to learn about it and do what we like to do with ham radio (have fun). We will also be running a special net on our 2 meter repeater during the exercise. If they do not fly because of the weather we will still conduct an exercise and explore our capabilities. All members are welcome and encouraged to be there.
