We will be operating on 20 and 40 meters (frequencies yet to be decided, but in the phone portion of the bands) and on 2 meter VHF during the event.
All QSOs will be confirmed with a special 8 1/2" x 11"Certificate (see our web site: fdlhams.org.)
A monthly net will meet to help interested hams learn about & practice Slow Scan TV (SSTV) on the 2 meter national simplex frequency for SSTV. You are invited to join us. This is a semi-formal, directed net. I will serve as NCS.

JDRF is asking for our help with the Walk on May 18, 2013. The event will back at Riverside Park in Neenah and will follow the same route as in the past. The walk is 5K long so it will go pretty quick and should be wrapped up before noon. Two meter simplex will be used. We will meet at 8 am in front of the Neenah swimming pool on Park Avenue. (Two blocks south of Wisconsin Avenue.) This location has easy access and lots of parking. We can use 10 or 12 operators.
Thanks to all who helped with communications and logistics for the American Cancer 5K walk/run - Sole Burner 2013.
We had rain, snow, sleet and High Winds to contend with, but all operators stayed on location until Net Control cleared their station. MORE....
Great event today!! Thank you all for the help, it really made a difference.
