June 26, 2021 – 2021 Field Day

This year GTARC has chosen not to sponsor our own ARRL Field Day event. It has been difficult to find a suitable venue due to the pandemic. Also, since the pandemic began, we have been concerned about decreased membership participation ….. But, we are now coming to a more socially inclined season. It is time for us all to leave behind our isolational ways, and get together, responsibly, and have a great time with our wonderful hobby and each other.

So, fortunately, the Menifee Valley Amateur Radio Club (MVARC), has graciously extended to GTARC an invitation to join with them at a wonderful venue for this years Field Day, on Saturday, June 26,2021, 8am-8pm, at La Ladera Park(click for Google Map). An RSVP will be required by Friday, June 18, 2021, if you want to set up your own HF station (limited space for ~3 more), or if you wish to participate in a BBQ/Potluck. If neither, we all hope you will drop by for any amount of time to say hi, see some cool Ham gear, and maybe learn how to, or participate in contest DX’ing,


Archives for the “GTARC Triangulator”. It was a monthly news letter from our past presidents. They make for good reading, and they give on an understanding of the club’s history and philosophy.
