2018 OCARC Picnic and “California QSO Party”

Click on Map for more information

October 6 is the weekend of the California QSO Party. Come and join fellow OCARC members and guest at the Jeffery Open Space Park for a day of radioactive friendship. We are planning to have a station on the air operating in the California QSO Party.

Participants should plan on bringing their own food and drinks. Additional picnic chairs would be a good idea.

Parking is available at the intersection of Shepard and Grassland which is very close to the picnic benches.

Antennas will most likely be a 20M vertical and a few dipoles. There are 40 foot trees at each end of the picnic area offering a chance to try out your antenna launchers. Rigs will be IC‐7000 and IC‐746Pro.

The facilities include four park benches and clean restrooms. Club popup tents will provide shading.

Members who are unable to attend can still contribute by submitting their CQP logs as an OCARC club submittal.


Club Auction

OCARC Radio & Electronics Auction

Each year our club holds an radio and electronics auction. It gives our participants a chance to clean their garages and shacks and pick up new treasures. Please keep your items limited to electronics and items that are of interest to radio amateurs.

We would like to have new faces on the board each year. If you think you might be interested but don't know what is involved, talk to a club member or better yet, drop in on one of the open breakfast and board meetings. The train whistle might just blow for you!
