Winter Field Day Wrap

January 29 @ 10:00 am - 10:30 pm

AARO+SARC Winter Field Day, January 29, 2022, San Antonio, TX

The Alamo Area Radio Organization (AARO) and San Antonio Radio Club (SARC) 2022 Winter Field Day was a fun and rewarding event for several club members. We started shortly after 0930 Saturday morning and left at about 2215 CST Saturday evening. The weather was clear and in the 60’s most of the day but was in the high 30’s when we left. There was no offical field day designation for us, so everyone used their own call signs and the 1OSTX designation for our QSOs.  We had several US QSOs using SSB, CW, FT8 and one SSB QSO with an event station in Santo Domingo. Eleven hams attended and while a few didn’t bring radios, we all had fun and some good conversations. KC3MVS’s XYL brought hamburgers, hot dogs and Korean ribs that we cooked on the Legion’s grill, so we had an excellent lunch. Since the event had no formal organizer, several hams pitched in to get things set up and everyone helped in sharing technical knowledge and experience with different radios and antennas. We’re thankful to American Legion Post 300 and its members for letting us use the facilities there.

Here are some photos and the call signs of the hams who showed up for this Winter Field Day in no particular order. Apologies if anyone wasn’t included!

Dale (KB5YSJ), Brian (AC5GL), Jose (KV0RE), David (N7LRY), Bob (K5AUW), Jack (W5NIS), Matt (K5NON), Chris (KI5MJZ) and his XYL, Larry (KG5RVR) and Pete (KC3MVS).
