Winter Field Day 2019

The WAARC supported the OCV Boy Scout Star Trek Camporee, October 27, 2018 at Hall Park, Riverside, IA. 2018 Fall Camporee flyer
We had 8 groups of scouts throughout the day joining us in our heated Comm trailer.
Many of the scouts and leaders were interested in Amateur Radio and took literature home.
The HF bands were disappointing, bewteen contests and lack of response on the WARC bands, but 2 meters and WAARC club members saved the afternoon by making contacts with willing scouts.

Fact of the Day

We gratefully thank the Washington County Riverboat Foundation for another generous grant enabling us to equip our emergency communication trailer for the benefit of Washington County residents.
It is being put to good use!
