Save the date for Saturday August 25th, 2018 for the ROC City Net and Hamfest.

Free admission. Setup is at 6 am and gates open at 7 am.  Come to swap and sell and win and eat.  Door prizes, raffles and food from vendors and the restaurant on site.  Looks like great fun and you can even bring a table to sell your own items.

HAM Radio Off Grid / Portable

With the summer half over and things being what they are in California, which ARES, RACES and other Amateur Radio groups assisting and responding to the tragedy, it was brought to my attention that maybe some helpful information should be put out there.  The following website has some great information about putting together a Go kit and using Solar for QSO’s from Finland to Italy.  So take a look at some of his information and maybe it will inspire you to build a kit for hiking, survival, emergency preparedness, or even ARES or RACES assistance, or even for just having some Field Day fun.

Enjoy the site from OH8STN and what he has to provide.
