What's New/Happening This Month...
July 17th 7PM - OVARC Membership Meeting -
VP8PJ DX-pedition to Signy Island, Antarctica
What’s it like to board the Braveheart at Punta Arenas, Chile and sail for 6 days to 60 degrees south? What approvals are needed to land on an Antarctic island, ferry thousands of pounds of equipment to the island, establish a campsite and operate radio for 2 weeks, non-stop? How is equipment taken to the campsite, install tents capable of withstanding Antarctic winds, rain, snow and ice? What radios, amplifiers and antennas were used? Where did they get electrical power, food, and water? How many contacts did they make to how many countries and to how many different call signs?
Come to our July OVARC member meeting via Zoom and listen to Gene - K5GS explain the answers.
Detailed Zoom information will be available closer to the meeting date. 73!
Other 2020 OVARC Membership Meetings...
Due to concern for the health of our members/guests, and in compliance with CDC, State, and Local Government directives, REGULAR OVARC Membership meetings will not resume until an "all clear" is announced by these agencies. Until then, we hope to schedule more "Zoom" meetings. Check back here often for updates! Thank you for your cooperation.
