The good WX on Saturday brought out a great turnout at DX Engineering. The new Icom 7610 was one of the main interests at the event and great deals on open box items. Nothing like going to a Ham radio store to spin the dials on all the new equipment. The staff at DX was there to answer questions and help with orders, not many guys and gals leaving with empty hands. Tnx to Tim Duffy K3LR who was also helping and greeting as many folks as he could. Looking forward to the August event which might include a car show at Summit Racing.

Winter Field Day
Winter Field Day Association (WFDA) is a dedicated group of Amateur Radio Operators who believe that emergency communications in a winter environment is just as important as the preparations and practice that is done each summer but with some additional unique operational concerns.
We believe as do those entities of ARRL Organizations like ARES & RACES that maintaining your operational skills should not be limited to fair weather scenarios. The addition of Winter Field Day will enhance those already important skills of those that who generously volunteer their time and equipment to these organizations. This is why WFD is open to all licensed amateur radio operators worldwide.
Disasters are unpredictable by nature and can strike when you least expect them. WFDA’s goal is to help enhance your skills and ready you for all environmental conditions found in the US and Canada during the spring, summer, fall and winter Preparedness is the key to a professional and timely response during any event and this is what local and state authorities are expecting when they reach out to the emergency service groups that offer their services.
When: Winter Field Day runs for 24 hours during the last full weekend in January each year from 1900 UTC (2pm EST) Saturday to 1900 UTC (2pm EST) Sunday. For 2018, the dates are January 27th and 28th.
