Field Day Update

We are less than two weeks away from ARRL Field Day 2014 and we’re beginning to make final preparations for the big day.

Field Day 2014 Postcard

For those who wish to participate, we will have a quick meeting on the Monday prior, June 23rd, to conduct a quick site survey, note items of concern, discuss safety gear, and go over antenna and equipment placement. This will be your opportunity to voice suggestions and view the site with other operators as it will be conducted on-site at Chisholm Park at the Bluebonnet Pavilion beginning at 7 PM. Even if you are unable to participate on Field Day we welcome your input and all are welcome.

If you can’t make the meeting or are unable to volunteer as an operator, please come and visit us at Chisholm Park in Hurst, TX on June 28th and 29th at the Bluebonnet Pavilion.

Expand Your Knowledge on Saturday Mornings

The Hurst Amateur Radio Club will be begin offering a new time from 8am to 9am on Saturday mornings for those hams that want to continue to expand their knowledge on different topics. This is in addition to the 9am to noon GROUP time that we’ve had for years for projects and mentoring. Come for the knowledge, stay for the practical!

Beginning April 5th, 2014, we will offer a bi-weekly Extra Class Study group for anyone wanting to refresh or test for Extra. This isn’t an instructor-led licensing class, just an opportunity to get together with others studying for their Extra class license. There will also be knowledgeable Extras on hand to share their experiences.

Beginning April 12th, 2014 we will offer a bi-weekly Morse Code class. if you’re ever wanted to learn or you want to get back up to speed on code, this is the one to come to.

The study topics are subject to change based on interest and attendance. Visit our Meetup event calendar for more information and to let us know you’re coming!
