Just wanted to remind everyone that the Briarpatch Amateur Radio Club will have the annual Field Day activities at Higher Ground Retreat Center on June 24.  I probably will leave something out, if you catch it just let me know...I don't mind corrections.  

     Field Day activities will be at Higher Ground camp ground that is located off the Blue Ridge Parkway at mile post 190 on the south side.  If you need additional directions let me know, we will have ribbons or balloons to mark the turn off.  Come on Saturday, June 24 whenever you would like to set your gear up to operate.

  • 4 pm= Covered dish meal, bring your favorite club provides drinks and paper products.

    You can have the opportunity to bring a non-licensed friend to operate beside of one of our licensed hams. If you want to stay, just bring your tent & set up on the grounds at no extra cost, the Sonshine house is $10.00 per person (bunk style housing),  the Fairview lodge is $60.00 per room (two full size beds per room), Inn Agape is $72.00 per room (two full size beds).  Please let me know if you would like to stay the night.
