Tentative Camp-a-Long Dates 2019

Now that summer is here it’s time to go camping.

We attempt to schedule the trips around other activites and try to land on contest weekends to maximize HF activity.

Tentative dates for camping trips:

  • July 13-14
    Location – Dinkey Creek (old Camp Mar-y-Mac site)
    IARU HF World Championship
  • Aug 17-18
    Location: TBD
    North American QSO Party
  • Oct 5-6
    Location: TBD
    Califorina QSO Party

These trips are typically to to a “dry” campsite location which means no running water and no toilets. We try to find sites that can accomodate camp trailers and RVs for those of you don’t want to “rough it” too much.

If you are interested in going let Rob AE6GE know (ae6ge@k6arp.org)
