Once the weather warms up we like to take our radios outside. In the spring and summer we replace Construction Project with SARC in the Park. Everyone is encouraged to bring their portable radios, go-boxes, antennas and batteries outside and operate away from home. The event typically takes place at on the front lawn of the Schaumburg Community Recreation Center on the second and fourth Saturdays of the month. Watch the calendar for any cancellation due to weather or location changes.
This activity tests all of our abilities to be able to operate under non-ideal conditions, such as during and emergency deployment. Clever methods of stringing up antennas are always appreciated, and well designed portable “go-boxes” always draw a lot of comments. Join us and see how we can operate under these non-ideal conditions.
