Short recap of FD and the Carranza Special Event N2M.

President’s Remarks

We had a great Field Day! I want to thank Bob Sunberry, the Tabernacle Emergency Management Coordinator for hosting the FD event at the Tabernacle Emergency Services Building; and the Tabernacle School Board for allowing the BCRC to use the field adjacent to the ESB for several of our antennas.


FD is the premier event to exemplify how amateur radio serves as a communications resource, sometimes the only resource, in an emergency.


Looking forward to the Carranza Event starting next weekend. Hope everyone joins me in operating!
