K0AIR, as well as the personal call sign of

July 26th, 2019 !!
was on the air!!!
Our club’s participation at this year’s USSTRATCOM Summerfest picnic on July 26th was a great success! Along with a variety of family-oriented activities, our club was given the opportunity to set up a ham radio station on the front lawn of the former Strategic Air Command (SAC) headquarters building. Hundreds of people attended the event, many of whom walked by and chatted about amateur radio. Several took the chance to experience hopping on the radio for some guest operator contacts!
Thanks to the outstanding support of the SAC Memorial Amateur Radio Club and members of the Bellevue Amateur Radio Club, we had a good representation of Field Day operations and people monitoring pre-coordinated frequencies. During the day, we made contacts on 2m, DStar, and FT8. We attempted 20m but propagation was not ideal. Throughout the day, licensed Hams working at USSTRATCOM stopped by and asked to be kept in the loop of club activities. Additional guests asked for information regarding upcoming classes. Adults and children alike expressed interest in what we do.
A special thanks goes out to SACMARC for the use of the K0AIR call sign for this event (Strategic Air Command’s historic call sign used by the former “military recreation station”) and for the tremendous support given by a myriad of members stopping by to lend a hand.
