Historic Bridges Event
Saturday July 19, 2014
Park at end of Ridout St. near the Black Friars Bridge
Make contacts with other Historic Bridges around the world
Field Day was a huge success this year. We far surpassed our score from last year. The weather co-operated and the bugs weren't bad at all. We had a good showing of contacts on SSB and CW, plus for the first time we had a group running PSK31. We had a great BBQ organized by members of the executive, which everyone enjoyed. Details to follow and posting of pictures. We are already planning for next year, more beams, more transmitters, more solar panels and more modes!
Waiting for 10 Meters to open on Field Day.
The above photo is of Ansil Rock and John Visser waiting for 10 Meters to show some signs of life during Field Day. The band conditions on Saturday were not open for 10 Meters, but around sunset the band opened. "Rocky" was able to make a contact with a station in Hawaii, he was very happy with that contact. On Sunday the band was still open and many contacts were made on the west coast.
The next L.A.R.C. meeting will be held in September, there are no meetings during the summer for the club.
During the summer we do have a number of events, Field Day, the bridges event and the lighthouse event. Check the upcoming events for further details.
As always we informally meet for breakfast each Saturday at the Cottage restaurant, at Adelaide and Dundas, across from the main Police Station, anytime after 8:30.
