Just want to give a head's-up to all off-road amateur radio operators in the So Cal area - Outdoor Adventure USA will be holding it's annual Summer Fest / Field Day event on June 24-26, 2016, in the Los Padres National Forest.
This event is always a great weekend, with 3 days of camping in the mountains, off-road trail runs, pot-luck dinners, Amateur radio testing (outdoors in the beautiful mountains of So Cal), as well as Field Day activities. This is a fantastic way to help prepare for communicating during an emergency, as we will be deploying antennas and radio stations in a remote area, using alternative methods of power.
Everyone is welcome. If you have never operated on the HF bands, during a contest situation, this is your chance, whether your are a licensed Ham or not.
