Once again the club participated in another successful ARRL Field Day Event.  We worked as an 8A station in the Sacramento Valley (SV).   The weather was great and band conditoins were not too bad.  Thanks to all who came up to help and participate.  Here are a few pictures that were taken at the even.  I'll post our scores when I get them.
