The Suburban UHF Amateur Repeater Society

Field Day

Early morning at Marengo for Field Day.


Great crew of people here yesterday. Dave, KA9KWR was a beast on the straight key yesterday assisted by Kaylee (not yet but I'm working on it). We had some new members (John KD9OPE) operate on HR for the first time, I think Mark N9UM got him bit with the HF bug. Kent KD9PCZ joined us as well as the usual suspects. Noel KE9AU, Carson KD9FLO, Kirby W8DCD, Dave KD9KAK as well as a spot visit from Roger KF9D and John K9JK.

Special shout out to two folks Keith KC9ZON for organizing and getting the food and all the other bits that have to get done to make this event happen. The Pizza idea was pure genius and an especial thanks to Karen Sue KC9DTL for helping us get this great site at Marengo Ridge Conservation District (2411 N IL-23, Marengo). If you haven't been here it's an awesome place.

While the crowd was small, we all had a great time. I'm looking forward to next year and to see who still has their pins.

SUHFARS Spring Meeting
April 28, 2020 UPDATE

Time to prepare to get your Pizza on and share an evening with your fellow SUHFARians.

Per KD9MZ our president.

At this point I have cancelled the April 28th meeting at Sideouts, it will not take place at the restaurant. I am trying to figure out a different way for us to have a meeting and am looking at some alternative on-line means.  Iím considering the idea of having a virtual connection to allow anyone who can join from a PC to do so.  Please stay tuned to the web site as well as look for further e-mails.
