June 26th and 27th Field Day weekend is back! The SSRA had about 50 visitors this year with 20 getting on the air with us! Extreme record breaking heat was a challenge, but everyone suffered through it. Loads of contacts were made and the J-Pole antenna building workshop saw 21 people building their own new antenna!
May 15th 2021. March 15th Foxhunt proved to be a challenge! Everyone found the Imma Fox but 1 team. The last team burned lots of fuel and found it once dark was near! Future hunts will be heavily attended as the points for each hunter continues to rise.
March 14th 2021. The SSRA held a Spring Test and Tuneup for the Foxhunting season opener on Saturday March 20th. There were 11 hunters this day and the first to bag the fox only took 92 minutes from start to finding Imma Fox. Many more hunts to follow, as operators hone their Radio Direction Finding skills. This will prove to be an entertaining event that will encourage more radio use, exercise and antenna building skills.
APRS BallooningSSRA members funded an APRS PICO Satellite and Scientific Balloon for an APRS flight! The first attempt to get the balloon in the air was not successful due to high winds, however on March 11th 2021, the balloon took flight. Local media showcased the story and the balloons interest has sparked much interest in the SSRA and Mid-Altitude Ballooning.
