2022 Arde Centenial & Anual Picnic

We had a great turnout at this year's picnic and Centennial celebration for  Arde (KA9WAR). Around 24-26 people joined our get-together and shared some great food grilled by Jim (K8IR) and potluck by some pretty good cooks! Of course our guest of the hour, Arde made the rounds and made a point to visit everyone. It was a fun afternoon, and great to see so many friends!







2022 Field Day

Brett & Jeremy made 471 contacts in the club's new
Emergency CommunicationsTrailer... Thanks, guys!
Arde Nelson Stops by to visit and check things out, His 100th Birthday
is on July 2nd so make sure to wish him Happy Birthday!
We had a good number of volunteers that made Field Day possible this year, kd8ovr, kd8fue, kg9gh with his wire stringing skills, k8ir saved the day with his radio & fantastic grilling, ke8kwu, ns8v with his great venison brats, and of course Brett & Jeromy for all the contacts they made! Thanks to all of you, and to everyone who visited us for making this a fun field day!


Our new EmComm trailer ready for dispatch! Served us well this field day making 471 contacts in dry, cool comfort. We owe many thanks to many people for bringing this to fruition.  The main drivers for this project is Doug (kd8ovr), Mike (kd8fue), Tim (wn6khg), Steve (k9stt), and also Bruce (n9con), Cal (k1sgw), AJ (kb7kz), and I am sure there were others. There were also material donors, SK - Floyd Croy (k8zlo Lots of radio equipment), The owners of the Shopko Building (desks & cabinets), Pete (ab9pj for UHF repeater and misc equipment).
