MicroHAMS Club Meeting Notes - February 17, 2015
2015 ARRL Field Day
We had a presentation by Michael Roessler of the Mercer Island Radio Operators (MIRO) followed by an election about what we will be doing for the 2015 ARRL Field Day June 27-28. The results are:
- Location: We’ll be joining forces with other groups on Mercer Island at Luther Burbank Park.
- Booth: We will not create a separate, dedicated MicroHAMS booth this time.
- MicroHAMS Field Day Czar: Tim Myers, KK7TM
