For those of you who are staying in town for Labor Day weekend we will be playing with radios this Thursday and Saturday…at W4DFU, D11-27 dental sciences building


On Thursday night Sept. 2nd we will be:


  1. Firing up the Gator Nation Earth station and working OSCARs, orbiting satellites carrying amateur radio.  We will start at 7pm make contacts on them for 3-4 hours.
  2. Having an alumni net on our W4DFU repeater and echolink from 7:30 to 8:00 pm, net control Nigel Ricards KB4F in Boca Raton.
  3. Joining the AMSAT net at 8 pm.
  4. Programming Gator1 card access to the club door lock for new members who have ham tickets starting at 8pm.


On Saturday Sept. 4th we will be holding an open house starting at 10 am and lasting for 4 hours (UF game starts around noon). We’ll fire up all the radios and show the world there is more than just football in Gainesville


I hope you will join us for these events.  E-mail me with any questions… [log in to unmask]
