1st Autumn OARC Portable Day

17th / 18th September 2022

TL;DR

An opportunity to get outside and play radio before the long nights of winter set in. No restrictions on what counts as portable, do a SOTA, do a HEMA, activate a park or just find a local beach and work some contacts. Log all your contacts in any 12 hour period over the weekend. Anything, any band, any mode, just get out there and use your radio.
