Come out and have some fun operating with us. Please join us for a dutch breakfast at the Golden Corral (2155 Riverside Parkway Lawrenceville, GA 30045) starting at 7:30am on Saturday, or plan to meet us at the EAA 690 Hangar (our regular GARS Meeting location) anytime after 9:30am on Saturday. We will setup the antennas and equipment and provide some lunch (probably pizza), and be ready to begin operating at 2:00pm (that’s the official start time for the GQP on Saturday). We plan to have four stations (2 – CW, 2 – SSB) on the air operating while we are there during the QSO Party. We will provide some dinner Saturday evening around 6:00pm (probably hot dogs and chili), and break for the night by 9:00pm. We will come back on Sunday starting at 9:30am and be ready to begin operating at 10:00am (that’s the official start time for the GQP on Sunday). We will provide some lunch (TBD) and continue to operate until around 4:00pm. Then, we will take down the antennas and pack up the equipment.
For ARES members – helping with setup, or operating at this event, counts as a field qualifying event.
