We had a succesful event during the 66th Annual Brat Days, celebrating the sausage that made Sheboygan famous! Members operated from their homes over the 2 day event, totalling 288 contacts. Band conditions were spotty at best, but those who did work us were happy to make the contact. QSL Certificates are still available: W9VCL Sheboygan County Amateur Radio Club, 4235 N 29th Street, Sheboygan, WI 53083. Please include $2.00 for an 8-1/2×11 mailed in manila envelope or send $1 and SASE #10 (certificate will be folded). More information: www.W9VCL.com on QRZ.com.
Field Day 2019———it was a success!
Setup began at 10:00 a.m. at the Town of Sheboygan Firehouse Park. In total, the club had 2 operated 2A with an additional GOTA station. Simple/wire antennas made the set-up a snap and we enjoyed a pleasant day in the park. We made a total of 96 contacts on 5 bands and had a few hams stop by to check out the operation.
Join us next year – the fourth full weekend in June for Field Day 2020!
