We all had a great time at Onondaga Lake Park last year!
The weather was perfect and we made over 2200 QSOs! Now we are getting ready for 2017- we will be back at the Open Skate area of Onondaga Lake Park. This year we will have VHF equipment, will try the FO-29 satellite and 2 mtr SSB with a 150 watt amplifier. And if we have time we might even try some Moonbounce ! EME conditions are ideal during this years FD.
