2015 BBQ Kick OffPosted: April 4, 2015 Filed under: Uncategorized Leave a comment
A few of the Parachute Mobile team members met for a BBQ get together at Sunnyvale Baylands Park. The sky looked ominous at first, but soon the clouds open up just enough to let in some sun. I brought along my good ‘lo IC-718 and set up a new Ultimax 100 End Fed antenna, which worked out pretty well. The plan for this year is to try and get two missions in this Spring and early Summer and then finish off the year with two more missions in the Fall, with our last mission being in conjunction with Pacificon. The tentative date for Mission 20 is set for Sunday May 24. Check back soon for updates.
