Fox Hunt This Saturday
This Saturday, May the 15th, the PVARC will be conducting a 'fox hunt'. If you've never been a part of one of these events, it's really quite cool. Even if you're not a ham yet, but maybe considering it, this will be great time to come check it out as we develop our direction finding skills and just have fun.
