Field Day 2018

NARS hosted a field day event at Burroughs Park in Northwest Houston. This year we have 591 contacts in the log.  Last year we had 498.  Thanks to all who participated. It was hot - the usual Texas weather for June. At least we didn't have to contend with rain and thunderstorms. We had our traditional barbecue lunch/dinner on Saturday (Thanks, Tom - KD5EIJ).
