Members of the W5JAS Lakes
Area Amateur Radio Club will be participating in the national Amateur
Radio Field Day exercise, June 22 – 23 at
the Jasper Texas Boy Scout hut. The Boy Scout hut is located just north
of the intersection of 2nd street, and W. Houston Drive across the street from
the Jasper Jr. High School.
Since 1933, ham radio operators across North America have
established temporary ham radio stations in public locations during Field Day
to showcase the science and skill of Amateur Radio.
The public is invited to stop by and visit and sign the guest log from 12 noon till 6pm on Saturday. You may access additional information by viewing the ARRL web page at http://www.arrl.org/field-day
We will also offer VE radio license testing during the day as well.
ARRL Field Day 2018 will be held this weekend at the Jasper Boy Scout hut on 2nd Street across from the JR High School. Everybody is invited to attend. VE’s will be available during the day if you wish to take an exam. The W5JAS repeater (147.00 pl 118.8 negative offset) will be used as a talk-in for the local days events.
