We will be meeting at my place, June 4, 2016 at 9:00AM after the OPARC breakfast to clean up and organize the field day trailer, check antennas and coax, and whatever else needs to be done. This preparation makes the set up on the actual ARRL Field Day much easier for us all. The address is 1020 Browns Rd. Middleburg, FL 32068. Come out and help prepare for the big event and enjoy the fun and fellowship. With a little help, we should get done before lunch.

This ham has a great blog and has tons of fun projects you can do with this dongle.
