HBO Radio Club/SPARC Field Day 2005

The Home Box Office Amateur Radio Club and the Suffolk Police Amateur Radio Club

For the second year the HBO Radio Club combined efforts with the Suffolk Police Amateur Radio Club to produce a truly enjoyable Field Day. We had fun, made a bunch of contacts and introduced Amateur Radio to a few people. Here are some pictures:
