The bands are hot!! I made a contact there on Jan 9 using the log periodic at Perry Field. Just a reminder, both stations, Perry Field and Green Clover Hall are open to all licensed club members and guests. Technician class is able to work a slim portion of 10 meters also, but everything else needs a general class or higher.
Don’t wait! Try it now. Contact any board member for more information on operating at Green Clover Hall or Perry Field.
