DMRAA Field Day Just Around the Corner, June 21-22

May 29th, 2019 | By | Category: Alerts

Field Day, the annual gathering of Amateur Radio operators will occur this June 22nd and 23rd at  THE FORT DES MOINES MUSEUM AND EDUCATION CENTER, 75 East Army Post Road. This is a great opportunity for operators who want to see what happens when one moves outside of their comfort zone and makes this happen at a remote location.  It is hoped that this location will be more convenient for hams, family members and the public to participate in Field Day activities.

Questions may be directed to: Dennis O’Brien, KAØ, 515-473-1013.
