The biggest ham radio event of the year is upon us.  On June 27-28, the 24-hour event will be underway with the goal of showing the public how amateur radio can operate without the use of the electrical grid which is particularly important during disasters (severe weather, floods, hurricanes, disasters, etc).  But it is more than just that.  It is a great time for all to see each other and reflect on the last year of events and share memories.  We hope that everybody will take some time to be part of this exciting 24-hour event at Reaves Park.  More information can be found here.
Did you know that the weather is the least of our worries when it comes to using the power of the airwaves?  That big yellow thing in the sky, the sun, can be a beast on communications.  Amateur radio operators are always monitoring the space weather that is created by our sun and can influence the HF frequencies greatly.  So, it might look like a nice day outside but for amateur radio operators, they could be dealing with a severe weather event, albeit solar in nature! 
Do you have a ham radio shack or mobile set-up that you would like for others to see? Want to help others on ideas for a set-up for their ham radio shack or mobile operations? Send emails to WX5AKK with a picture(s) and details of your set-up.
