PAARC Field Day Re-cap
Bill (W3FRB) "I just wanted to send a great big Thank You to all
who braved the bad weather and even worse band conditions and
attended this year’s field day. We celebrated the true purpose
of Field Day this year- able to communicate in less than ideal
communications. At PAARC our second purpose – to have fun
was also celebrated. Leonard (W3VP) and Mike (KB3OZD)– watch out
for those old, feisty coal region football players!)
a special thank you goes to Bill (WF3M) for use of his
facilities and Ed (N3WXW) for his Field Day leadership."
