Field Day 2015 is Complete

Another one is behind us

 

Though we still have a few things to pack up Tuesday night, a few extra hands would be good.  Though hot on Friday and Soggy on Saturday, Sunday’s weather was darn near perfect in comparison. We worked as 4A with operators Scott KN3A, Dale N3BNA, Jonathan NB3I, Mike KJ6MIC, Harry, WA3FFK, Jeff KC3ETC, Linda KC3BKF, Tom KB3ZGF, and Mark K3MRK

I am still tallying the score but feast on pictures posted in the Gallery. If anyone has more pictures of field day please email them to me at K3IR@arrl.org so I can post them on the website.

2015 Field Day

Come Join us to Celebrate the Siting of our New Building

Field day we will be operating at portable at the Sparc site. This year Sparc will celebrate the landing of our new operating building. Come out to help starting 8AM on Saturday with less strenuous activities starting at 2. Food will be served with donation request for non-members.

We look to operate as 4A along with a VHF/UHF station and a Get on the Air station. This means anyone who wishes can join in the fun and make a few Q’s.

Activities, education, and good ole BSin’ is always available throughout the event. No age limits either, we have had operators as young as 7 and as old as 87 come out.

Field Day will run from 8AM Saturday June 27th through 1 PM Sunday June 28th. The public is encouraged to come between 1 PM Saturday through 10PM Saturday and again Sunday from 8 AM to 1 PM.

Located at 1715 Brenaman Road Manheim PA situated between Hostler and Colebrook road (look for the big towers) Sparcs site represents a gamete of opportunities for Amateur radio. Come join us at the Site

We are almost there!

Many of you know we are raising funds for a new operating building.
We are $3000 shy of hitting our trigger point.

The plan is for a 14×32′ building on site as a replacement for the operating building and the storage shed. This will be a prebuilt structure set onsite. This building will act as meeting space and operating space for seven permanent  stations. Below are renders  of the the building outside on location and an idea of the interior layout.

With our goal so close in range we are asking anyone who is willing and able to offer what they can to push us over our goal. Action now could result in a building onsite by Field Day which would be amazing. A reminder Sparc is a 501.C(3) which always helps.

Navassa Night at the Club Building

Tuesday night 2/10 starting at 5:30 PM the club site will be open, the radio powered, the amp warmed and the Beam pointing South. For everyone that wants to try their hand at working one of the rarest DX stations in the world come out. The QSO is simple and the card is one for the logbook.

We will operate SSB, CW and RTTY trying to log as many across the bands and modes as we have calls to throw at them. It’s also board meeting that night so you know stay for that as well. Any questions feel free to contact Kevin, Scott or Harry.
