Field Day is June 24-25, 2023
The object of Field Day is to work as many stations as possible on the 160, 80, 40, 20, 15 and 10 Meter HF bands, as well as all bands 50 MHz and above, and in doing so to learn to operate in abnormal situations in less than optimal conditions.
The AARO Field Day will be held at the American Legion Post #300, 3290 Grosenbacher Rd, San Antonio TX 78245.
More details to follow on this website.
Thanks to everyone that came to the meeting tonight. Here is the PowerPoint from tonight.
