Amateur Radio Field Day - Jun 24
LCARA is celebrating its 75th Anniversary this year with a Field Day barbeque and operating station at Willow Grove park. The event is scheduled to start at 11:00a with camping available on-site Saturday night for pre-registered club members.
As we get closer to summer we’re also entering some Sporadic E seasonal conditions. We’ve enjoyed about 3 months of great band conditions on 10 meters through the early portion of 2023 with the rise of Solar Cycle 25 but now the sun and atmospheric conditions have other ideas.
The web link below will explain what Sporadic E means and how we might enjoy it. As far as Solar Cycle 25 is concerned, it’s not over, it’s still heading upwards. The lazy band conditions are all a part of the build-up thanks to our sun. Working those fleeting signals via sporadic E can be fun on 10 meters but don’t forget about 6 meters. Put up a 6 meter dipole or vertical and start listening!
