Ham Radio Operating - Borrego Fest 2015


Post by DaveK » Mon Sep 21, 2015 3:52 pm

During all three days of Borrego Fest, Hector Figueroa, KE6VRL, will be operating an Amateur Radio "shack" in the desert, in camp. In addition to several HF bands, Hector's set-up will also serve as comms central for all of the runs on Saturday and a 2 meter call-in station on 145.570 simplex.

With a little encouragement, I think we can get Hector to do an APRS demo, a demo on working satellites (the ISS?), and maybe even a little fox hunting. If time permits, I may be able to do a HF email demo.

Thanks Hector!!!

I'll be bringing VHF/UHF, HF, and APRS station to BorregoFest in case Hector needs any assistance (or a break :lol: )...which I'll be running mostly at night for those who are night owls....

Overall, we will have several types of mobile / portable radios, handheld radios, and antennas on hand for everyone to check out at BorregoFest - so if you have interest in any type of amateur radio communications, and have questions about operating or equipment, there will be folks who can help you :D
