  • HF Campout

    Friday, 28 July 2017 - Sunday, 30 July 2017

    The MCARES HF Campout is an opportunity for members to socialize and get some operating practice, from the comfort of the communications trailer, under more relaxed conditions than our drills, events, and meetings typically offer. Make some contacts on HF, hike nearby trails, share stories over group meals, and relax around the campfire. Make it a day trip or stay for the whole weekend.

    Our third annual campout will be the last weekend in July. We're still working on the details, but we hope to secure the Aquila Vista group campsite located in the Molalla River Corridor Recreation Area, about an hour south of Portland. Amenities include bathrooms, picnic tables, a picnic shelter, and a fire ring. There is no running water or electricity at the site. More details will become available once our camping permit request is approved.

    Contact Robert WX5TEX at robert6594j [at] gmail [dot] com to make reservations.
