Hot RF Nights

Join us for a fun in-person Sierra Foothills ARC meeting on Friday, August 13th at 7:30 pm. Bring a lawn chair and enjoy a brief outdoor meeting in a beautiful park-like setting, then we'll adjourn to the parking lot to appreciate everyone's effort and creativity in squeezing a ham station into their mobile shack. No installation is too trivial to show; it doesn't even need to be permanently installed. Bring what you use! Mobile installs, Go-Kits and other portable gear are welcome. Share system install tips and build ideas with others. A great opportunity to learn from others or show your gear!

For those showing your gear, putting a short a 1-page (large font) summary of your setup will help others understand what you've done. Please include information such as the rig and antenna models, any additional accessories, how you have the system powered along with your name and call sign. If showing portable items, bring your own table. Please note: there is no AC power available and we request no running generators. Also be sure to bring your own lawn chairs.

Everyone is invited! You don't need to be a SFARC member to attend. Invite your friends!
