Another Field Day is in the books! SARA operated W8WKY as a 5 Alpha site this year from the American Legion Hall in Rittman. A great time was had by all, and the site had many visitors on Saturday. SARA had slightly fewer points this year than last, but everyone ate well and had a lot of fun! Some preliminary information is available on the club website with detailed write-ups and photos coming.
SARA has partnered with the The SignMan of Baton Rouge to develop and provide SARA-branded member callsign badges. The badges are the engraved style with black lettering on a yellow background complete with the SARA logo. SARA is making one initial club-wide order this summer with all orders due by the July 18th meeting. After the initial order, members will be able to order their own badge directly from The SignMan’s online store starting in August. Check out the details on our webpage. https://w8wky.org/badges/
