VCARC will host a BORED Net 'Micro-Field Day' at the Dudley House 197 N.
Ashwood Dr. Ventura CA 93003 from 11AM until 3PM on October 29.
These µField Day events were started by The BORED Net and is a great way to
hang out with a bunch of other hams, blow the dust off your equipment, and
get more experience with your equipment in a portable setting. All hams
are invited. Previous locations have been Lake Sherwood near Westlake,
Rancho Potrero in Newbury Park, and CSUCI campus. One of the events had
16 HF rigs operating!
The BORED Net µField Days are also a great opportunity for newer hams to
see different setups in use, or to bring their own equipment for help.
They're open to everyone in the county, from all clubs (or not affiliated
with any club), licensed or just interested.
AC power, a bathroom, and "Fire and ice" will be provided (a BBQ pit and
ice), so bring something to grill for yourself.
Hope to see you there!

Subject: [K6MEP] Fall 2022 vhf/uhf/microwave SPRINTS Are Here!
Just when you thought that “ the self-appointed town crier” of
scheduled vhf/uhf events had forgotten to let Ventura Co. hams know about
the next one, here it is!
The Fall VHF/UHF SPRINTS, sponsored by the SouthEastVhfOrganization, will
be held over the next few weeks.
Designed to use 1 band only per evening each week, they are a great
opportunity to get on the air for a short time. Most people only operate
for the first hour or so in order that they can perform honey-dos for the
rest of the evening, walk the dog, or operate FT8 on HF.
The first SPRINT will be held on Monday, beginning at 7 pm pdt. 2 meters
will be the band this time.
Serious participants will open up the pdf for complete rules and scheduling
of the SPRINTS.
See you all on 144.200mhz usb, 146.52mhz fm simplex, or 144.174mhz ft-8
when I get on the air from 7pm to ~~8pm.

Santa Barbara Electronics Supply was just made a vendor for LDG. LDG makes
auto-tuners (up to 1KW), baluns, ununs, and dual analog color meters for
certain radios. We have to commit to a $1500 buy-in to establish our
dealership. If anyone needs any LDG product, please let me know today or
tomorrow (Thursday) at the latest. We are going to offer everyone who
helps us a discount on this purchase run (and we pay shipping to get all
the products to Goleta for pick up at SBES, although we can turn around and
ship to you direct if you are not local).
121.5 GRR Receiver Wide Area Deolyment
For several decades SBARC has sponsored monitoring of the emergency
beacon channel on 121.5. This was originally prompted and set up with
L-Tronics receivers at several locations. Today we have a blend of
L-Tronics and FAA 121.5 GRR receivers. The L-Tronics receivers shall in
time be replaced by GRR receivers. Presently we have two GRR receivers
in sefvice, one at UCSB, and one at Santa Ynez Peak. A third unit shall
be installed at the La Vigia TCF facility followed by a fourth unit at
either La Cumbre or Diablo. This program is being privately funded by
w1uuq for as a public service benefit for public safety.
