flspota-logo-300x300Pictures are up. Thanks, Clint.

Florida State Parks on the Air will be holding a Florida State wide event on April 7th and 8th.

SAARS wil be participating from the Anastasia State Park pavilion next to the Kayak Launch area. The park has agreed to allow all participants free access to the park. The park will be open from 8:00 AM until sunset. We should expect to operate from 10:00AM to park closing, allowing time for take down prior to park closing. We will need to take our equipment down on Saturday the 7th and return Sunday the 8th. Plan to bring easily constructed portable antennas.
