Club Meetings currently in person and via Zoom

The Eagle Rock Amateur Radio Club invites all amateur radio operators to attend our monthly meeting on the first Wednesday of every month,

Currently at 7:00 p.m. in person. We have stopped using Zoom.

Starting with the July meeting the person will be at the College of  Eastern Idaho although not in the normal room.

The start time will be 6:30 pm 4 August 2021 come early if you want to.

Here is a proposed location for the picnic, at Freeman Park in Idaho Falls. The location is behind the maintenance shed, very near the bathrooms. There's a bit of shade there, and there are usually several picnic tables.

The GPS location is 43.515187, -112.052678 - it's about 100 yards North of the Viet Nam Memorial on "Baseball Road,"
 the gravel drive through the middle of the park. It is where we held Field Day in 2018 and 2019. You can see the location on the maps I attached, marked at the red pin.

This is not a site we can reserve, but it is near the restrooms (bonus!). If you want to come early and help save the spot, bring your radio, throw a wire in a tree, and try making contacts! If I can get away from work early, I'll do the same. I don't think power is available, so you will want a battery and/or solar panel(s).

Bring some lawn chairs, in case the picnic tables have been moved away. There's decent shade under the trees, but we'll have to spread out a bit to enjoy all the shade.
