Upcoming Meeting

Tuesday, September 16, 2014 at 6:30 pm

"An Introduction to Direction Finding (DF'ing)", will start promptly at 6:30, Tuesday September 16, in front of the Springfield Justice Center east door entrance. From there we will car-pool or drive to the Willamette Heights Park where we had our field day this summer. Since daylight is of importance, we will do the program first and routine business meeting second. The "bunny" (transmitter that we will try to find), will have been pre-positioned and it will be our job to try to find it (before dark!). There will be several DF antennas and HT's provided, so we will most likely split up into teams. Nelson KF7EON, Randy KE7CRA, and Dave NK7Z will be team leaders and instructors.

Thanks, and I hope to see everyone there.

    Come join us.

    Ron WJ7R, Pres. EARS
