When: 11am - 2pm, Saturday, Aug 20, 2016
Where: Sunnyvale's Baylands Park, Pickleweed Place
(When you get to Baylands Park, turn right after going through the main gate.)
There isn’t be an evening WVARA meeting in August. Instead, we have our annual WVARA BBQ. Our location (see map below, the reservation is under “WVARA”) includes multiple tables, grill, an AC outlet, and a covered awning for shade. We'll have hot charcoal and condiments -- please bring your own meat to grill. Our BBQ coincides with the SSB portion of the North American QSO Party (NAQP) which means this is an ideal opportunity for a really fun portable radio operation. (NAQP Contest rules are at: http://www.ncjweb.com/NAQP-Rules.pdf). We can’t put up any big Field Day-style antennas at Baylands, but we can still string up an NVIS dipole and/or put an HF whip on top of the metal awning and have some fun in the contest.
