HBO Radio Club/SPARC Field Day 2006

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

For the third 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 more contacts than last year and introduced Amateur Radio to a few more people. It rained heavy both days of the event but we made the most of it anyway. Here are some pictures:
