2015 Winter Field day a fun event

Many hams turned out for the first operating event at the GNARC communications center.

Winter field day contacts were made to over 30 states and 36 sections. 20m and 40m were the bands we used. Much food was consumed, and a good time was had by all. Several new members visited the facility for the first time, and got to see it in action. Other hams brought kids to show them a little about the hobby.

Thanks to Sam NV1P for getting this going! See a few pictures below.
