planning to be at Woodstock Park once the various permits clear the
city. We will be out there from 10:00 AM Saturday Mat 25th through
3:00 PM sunday the 26th. This is a continuous operation so we need
operators at all hours. The intent is a 3A setup which will have a
CW, SSB and a combo Digital/6 Meter station. Also KC2DLR will
manage a GOTA station. More info will be coming out.
