• August Escape 2017 at the O'Leary Campsite

    Gary Cline AF7BJ led an intrepid group of 11 up to Flagstaff to escape the heat. They ended up operating SSB on 40 and 20, as well as a digital station. Some operation was solar, and one member brought up a portable SDR radio as well. Weather for most of the weekend was good, though rain on Sunday got most people heading back before the eclipse.


    Everyone enjoyed the Saturday pot luck, and the propane grills were put to good use. The cooler weather was a nice break from the temperatures in Phoenix. You can see how things went in the photo gallery.
