Field Day 2016

We combined Field Day with a National Parks on the Air Event.  We were fortunate to have the Pennington County Mobile Command Unit to operate from, in addition to a decked-out cargo trailer.  We erected a multi-band yagi, a 6m yagi and a Carolina windom wire antenna.  A great time was had by all.  The site was up for about 24 hours.  Many thanks to the Mount Rushmore folks who allowed us to operate from this wonderful site.

Skywarn Recognition Day

The club gathered at the Rapid City National Weather Service forecast office Friday evening and Saturday morning on the first weekend of December 2016.  Conditions were not the best, but some members got their initial experience operating on HF.

Winter Field Day

The club had a great time at Winter Field Day on January 28 & 29.  50 mile an hour winds limited us to one antenna, heavily guyed.  The abundance of donuts for breakfast and homemade chili for lunch were a big attraction.
