In preparation for Field Day, we are going to have our first antenna party this Saturday at 10am in the parking lot of Pinecone Lumber — 895 E Evelyn Ave in Sunnyvale — https://goo.gl/maps/zmXCCxp7tRNsTp1b7
This is our opportunity to assemble and test one of our HF yagis on its tower, Hope to see you there!
Believe it or not, we are returning to the Red Cross Building for our next WVARA meeting, which occurs at 7pm on Wednesday, May 11. It’s been over two years since we were last there, and several major changes have occurred:
- The Red Cross locks the exterior doors at 7pm sharp, so please come a few minutes early in order to get access to the building.
- We will be in Meeting Room 3 — not our traditional meeting room. Room 3 is about 100 feet from the side door. As a result, late comers who knock on the side door won’t be heard from our meeting room. If you are late and need access, you can call my cellphone (408 636-6172) and someone will come let you in. But please try to arrive before 7pm to avoid this hassle.
- The Red Cross policy is that everyone must wear a mask when entering the building, but that masks are optional once you are in a meeting room. Please be considerate to others regarding COVID.
Meeting Topic: All Things Field Day. We have a permit from the Rancho San Antonio Open Space Preserve to operate Field Day from Mora Hill June 24-26. We only have a couple of months to get ready and there’s lots to do. The focus on our May 11 meeting will be to discuss our plans and coordinate tasks.
Oh, and if you haven’t already done so, please take our on-line Field Dayparticipant survey (at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/7HWZMDB) to assist us in planning.
