Some thirty RANV members and family got together for our Summer Picnic (the 14th annual!) at Kill Kare State Park.
The weather was postcard perfect!
W1NVT was on the air with 3 stations: 40 meter SSB, 20 meter SSB and PSK and 2 meter FM. In the latter part of the day, a small reconnaisance group boated over to Burton Island for a small DX and Cache Expedition!
