ARRL Field Day 2018

Erecting the new towerStuart's Sandsprit Park became the epicenter of Amateur Radio in Martin County on Friday morning with the setup of our stations for Field Day 2018.  While we deployed our new 106-foot tower trailer for the first time, several others worked to locate and capture two 70 cm foxes hiding in the foliage around the park.  The setup went flawlessly, with many hands making light the work.

Our stations went On-The-Air on Saturday afternoon at 2 PM, joining thousands of others in the largest Amateur Radio event of the year!  More Info


The third annual Maker's Faire, sponsored by the Education Foundation of Martin County took place at the Pinewood Elementary School in Stuart on Tuesday, May 8th.  Martin County hams exhibited again this year.  Working with the kids was great, as always!  More Info

An Icom IC-7300, and many other prizes were given away at the event.  Visit www.stuarthamfest.com to see if you are a prize winner.  If you missed the hamfest this year, next year's Stuart Hamfest is just around the corner!
