South Texas Amateur Radio Club (STARC) participated in Winter Field Day 2022 and Parks On The Air (POTA) Saturday, Jan 29, 2022.
The club gathered at Goose Island State Park (K-3016) Rockport Texas. Members set up multiple deployable antenna configurations while utilizing various power options. In all, we made over 100 contacts around the USA in just 6 hours of operation. We appreciate all who came out and enjoyed this event with us.
Winter and Summer field day help Amateur Radio Operators maintain readiness level, test deployable equipment, practice propagation theory, and experience various modes of radio operation. Field Day and POTA participation also puts on public display amateur’s capability to serve the community in a disaster or emergency situation and potentially recruit new members in to our public service hobby.
