This year’s Field Day was held at Drum Point Club. The location was a very nice with good facilities, trees for antennas, and a good area for our stations. In spite of the out-of-the-way location, we had 12 visitors, including our ARRL MDC Section Manager, Marty / KB3MXM. County Commissioner Evan Slaughenhoupt visited and presented us with the proclamation declaring the week of June 20th through 26th AMATEUR RADIO WEEK in Calvert County!
A very good time was had by all with good food and fun!
The Digital Net will be held on the CARA 146.985 repeater on Wednesday evenings at 7:30 PM. The net is for experimentation, familiarization, and operation of the Yaesu System Fusion digital radios. See the Repeater and Nets page for more information.
Beginning on December 22, the Charles County Amateur Radio Club (CCARC) will be holding their Tuesday net on our 146.985 repeater at 8PM. It would be nice to check-in and give them a warm welcome. They were on a county tower that has been condemned and without a repeater for a while.
