Summer Field Day 2024

This year Summer Field Day was held at the Bell County Communications Center.  We would like to thank them for allowing us to setup on the property and operate in climate controlled conditions, both in the trailer and inside the building! Also, a big thank you to Myron (AA5MY) for bringing the BBQ!

Thanks to everyone for helping and participating.  A good time was had by all!
