For those that want to come out and play radio, just meet up with OAUSA folks for a day or even learn something new can meet up with us for radios in the park.
I'm planning on having a few HF stations set up to play around on, as well as APRS station for you to check out.
There will also be a testing session for those of you that want to get your license or even upgrade.

We'll be meeting at the south end of Red Hill Park in Rancho Cuamonga, CA near the pond on March 15th, 2014.
I'm planning on getting there and starting setup around 9am, we'll play radios until aruound 3 or 4 in the afternoon.

We do need to pull out some of our Field day equipment to make this happen but I'm aiming for something much less elaborate.
If you plan on attending, please post here in this thread and I'll update this list.

Things we need still need:
(3) radio masts for putting up 2 dipoles.
(2) HF dipoles
(1) HF Radio
(2 or 3) tables.

I figure we can run the radios off of a large battery that I have being that it's just one day.

Let me know if you guys have any questions, See ya there!

I'll be there with the IC7000 and Scorpion, APRS and the 2M and 440 ELK Antenna. I'll also bring one of the masts that we use for Field Day, a table and a chair....

I'll do an Airmail demo, if you want.

Thanks Larry!
What band is the TM free standing antenna for?
I think if you just bring the 15m and 20m dipoles we'll be good.
Having that generator around will also be awesome.

This all sounds good Don!
I think putting the end fed on 10m would be good.

Does anyone have tables that they can bring?
