White River Township Fire Department - Annual Strawberry Fest
Mark you calendars for Saturday, 8 June for this annual event. Club members will meet at the Bob Evans on State Road 135 around 8 AM. Setup for the event will follow at the Sugar Grove Elementary School. This event is a kind of Field Day for our club. Our participation is also a way to thank the WRTFD for their generosity in hosting our two-meter repeater at their station # 51. Plan to participate in whatever way you can, including buying some of the tasty food they will be offering - especially the popular strawberries, of course.

with lots of gain for your HT.
Gary Davis, KD9SB, demonstrated how easy it is to make a 2-meter J-pole antenna out of twin lead wire. He says it is ideal for camping, travel or where ever you need a little more gain for your HT.

The objective is to work as many stations as possible on any and all amateur bands (excluding 60, 30, 17, and 12-meter bands) and to learn to operate in abnormal situations in less than optimal conditions. Field Day is open to all amateurs in the areas covered by the ARRL/RAC Field Organizations and countries within IARU Region 2.

With storm season around the corner, I'm sure that ARES and RACES could use all the help they can get! Get involved in your local government and use your radio skills at the same time!
Contact Bob LaGrange with any questions you might have. Thanks Bob!!!
