AARA Training Day

April 9, 2022

The AARA will be hosting a training event starting at 9:00 AM on April 9th, 2022 at the farm of Steve Webre - AF5VR in Church Point, LA.  We will dive into Antenna Designs/Theory by Dave Redfern N4ELM as well as Parks on the Air 101 by Chris Ancelet N5MCY.  We hope that you will join us for a day of education, demonstrations, Q&A and plenty of laughter.  You are encouraged to bring your portable set up for testing and/or demonstration.  A flyer for the event can be found at AARA Training Day.

If you are new to the "Parks on the Air" program, we encourage you to view the excellent website and click on the "Help/Getting Started" tab to get started.
