Spring Fox Hunt
The Big Thunder ARC will be hosting a mobile Fox Hunt on May 26th!! The exact time is too be determined, but we will likely meet at 8am, and start the hunt at 9am. We will be meeting in the Belvidere area, and the hunt will be on throught about 1/2 of Boone County to find where the fox is hiding. More information about the hunt will be listed here soon.
The largest event hosted by Big Thunder Amatuer Radio Club is the annual Field Day. Field day is held in conjunction with the ARRL's field day events on the fourth full weekend in June. Field day is an opportunity for ham radio clubs to test their abilities to setup operating radio stations in the outdoors; this is a test run for a setup that might be used in the case of natural disasters such as tornados, hurricanes, and the like.
BTARC is hosting their 2018 Field Day on June 23rd at noon through June 24th at noon. The exact location of Field Day for 2018 is too be determined.
