What is a QSO party? Why might you be interested in participating? When is it? (Too easy: Saturday, September 17, from 9 am to 9 pm Iowa time.) What are the rules? Plan to attend, either in person at Northcrest Community (the Grand Room) or on line (via Microsoft Teams). More detail is available on the club's groups.io calendar: https://groups.io/g/W0YL/calendar

Call in (audio only): 319-423-3239 Phone Conference ID: 398 322 689#
The “in-person” location will be the Grand Room at Northcrest Retirement Community, 2300 Northcrest Parkway (exit from 24th Street). See the Northcrest information page for a map and more details. Please follow Northcrest Community’s sign-in and temperature screening protocol.
The program will review SCARC’s recent Field Day event, through photos submitted by members, and a tabulation of the hundreds of radio contacts made in 24 hours of operation. The meeting is free and open to the public.
Field Day Academy was conceived as an opportunity for folks who may be interested in Field Day participation to learn by doing in a low-risk environment, allowing those same individuals to feel more comfortable and confident with Field Day participation. We achieve this by using a Parks On The Air (POTA) activation as a proxy for Field Day activity.
Last year, participation was limited to those who were newly licensed or generally inexperienced with HF operation. However, this year, we are opening the event to ALL interested individuals.
