Black Friday- Let's go Play radio
Two things that really seem to enhance the amateur radio operating experience is setting up equipment outdoors and getting together a group.
Las Vegas area hams will have an opportunity to join in just such an activity this Friday November 29th, at the Red Rock overlook on SR 159 west of Las Vegas (Charleston Rd).
From sun-up until noon the plan is to bring anything you like and get on the air.
