Doug has been active on 10GHz since the 1990's. He will be doing a bonus talk about using surplus satellite dish LNAs.
  • Winter Field Day was a great success at the end of January. Lots of fun... lots of QSOs... lots of multipliers. Thank you to everyone who helped.
  • DUES ARE DUE. OCARC allows a 3-month grace period to renew your membership before you are removed from the membership roster. The PHP security software our website uses needs an update and we MAY LOSE the PayPal ability for a couple months until we can fix it. This switch over will happen late February and the results are unknown on whether PayPal will still work.
