Events and activities at the AARC:

Newcomers are always welcome!

Update for today, June 22: While we can legally start setup at 8 PM Eastern, we'll only have about a half an hour of daylight.

We may mark out some antenna locations and do some other minor setup, but we don't need a huge work-party.

Most of setup will occur on Friday starting at 8 AM and Saturday starting at 8 PM. Thanks.

Field Day, Field Day, Field Day!

(See below for revisions to set-up schedule)

It's time to get excited about Field Day, upcoming this June 24-25, 2017. We will operate out in the field next to our clubhouse. We're planning out our shelters, antennas, and equipment for our yearly demonstration, and would love to get you involved in some way. No membership required. Please contact us or drop by a meeting.

Keith/AE3D is our Field Day coordinator. Thank you Keith.

Setup crew, please bring a HT, tuned to simplex 146.430 Mhz (we commonly use this frequency for race event support.)
