Mark your calendars.
We will be meeting at my place, June 6, 2015 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.

The 02/14/2015 meeting has been canceled due to Orlando Hamcation. Everyone have a great time at Hamcation and come see us on the 28th.
I much regret that Dudley Davis N4DPD passed away on Saturday, January 31, 2015 at home with his family.
Dudley was one of the first hams that became one of my elmers. We went to multiple hamfest over the years and he helped me grow in the hobby. For several years we would goto Grumpys on Sunday mornings. He was active member of the Orange Park Amateur Radio club and member of the Clay County Sixers.
Dudley was a great friend to many of us and will be missed.
The viewing will be Monday 02/02/2015 from 5PM-7PM.
