2018 Fall Field Day

On 10 November the FCARC & Fayette ARES held an informal Fall Field Day event at Starr's Mill Park in Fayette County. One of the highlights of the event was training on Winlink over HF and VHF. The weather was beautiful, if a little cold, and we had a good turn-out of local hams who had previously learned about how to use Winlink over Telnet, but never saw it demonstrated via RF.

The Tri-PTC

The Tri-PTC sprint triathalon is held every year in Peachtree City, Georgia. The Tri-PTC organization has relied on ARES communication support since it started in 2002. This is a core communications activity for the Fayette ARES, Coweta ARES and KKGQ, and our support has made the Tri-PTC a safe, successful and nationally recognized event
