Time for the event will be from 8am until 2pm.

The Club will provide hamburgers, hot dogs, buns, and the condiments. We ask all who attend to bring a covered dish to share with the group.

At the picnic, our Club will demonstrate various modes of communications and a variety of antenna systems. All are welcome to bring any radio gear. We would especially like to get all of the technicians on the HF 10 meter band during the event.

This will be a great time to get to know your fellow hams.
