Just a reminder about our upcoming February meeting. We will be at the Gorman Foundation

Oneida, NY 13421 – Map link is here if needed.
Also, we will be doing things a little differently. There will be a presentation on POTA (Parks on the Air) and the meeting will be following the presentation. The meeting this month will be a type of potluck as some members will be bringing for to share and pass around.
Everyone is welcome to join us for the presentation and to stay for the meeting afterward if they desire. We look forward to anyone that wishes to come to a meeting and enjoy some food fun and fellowship.

Winter Field Day is being held on January 29/30, 2022. You can work from three different types of locations. It’s a great opportunity to learn new skills and try out new techniques.
You can be at Home, using your normal equipment and antenna. You can be Outdoor, where you use a location other than home, and is physically outside even in your own vehicle with antenna set up that is not fixed. Or lastly you can operate Indoor, using a location that is remote from your usually location and where an amateur station is not located.
It is an opportunity to test out your emergency communications procedures while also learning ways to activate in the field with limited resources. If you are interested follow the link below to get more information and prepare yourself for an interesting weekend.
