  • January μField Day on the 21st

    Micro Field Day is back again at the VCFD training center at the Camarillo airport, from 1100-1500 on Sunday, January 21. There’s a possibility of some rain, but nothing heavy predicted. Plus, last year we got POURED on at the airport and still had a great time. Keith will bring a couple of pop-up canopies. […]

  • December μField Day set

    Novemeber’s µFD was a success at the VCFD Training Center, so we’re going back. Temps will be in the 70s, wind will be mild, the sun will be shining…it’s almost unfair to have such nice weather four days before the winter solstice, isn’t it? Sunday the 17th, from 1100 to 1500 as usual. As always, […]

  • μField Day for November

    The BORED Net µField Day is ON for November! We weren’t able to get one in last month between my sudden trips out of town and availability of a suitable site, but the long wait is finally over thanks to Dan Dicke KE6NYT. Dan has arranged for the use of the Ventura County Fire Department’s […]

  • Special Announcement…μExpo!

    Keith, Ed and Zak have been working on this for the last 6 months, and it’s time to make it public. On August 31, 2024, we’ll be holding our first BORED Net Ham Radio µExpo! We’ll announce the location once contracts are signed…why tempt fate ;). This is going to be an event by and […]

  • μField Day and Silent Key Picnic with VCARC

    The Ventura County Amateur Radio Club is co-hosting another µField day with us on September 30th. It’s a quadruple-header event…starting at 0830 with a VE Test Session hosted by the club in their meeting room in the Dudley House in Ventura. After the VE session, the club is having their annual picnic combined with the […]

  • August μField Day

    Thanks to everyone who came out µFD in July! It was fantastic…in fact, so fantastic that we’ve outgrown the usual spot at Rancho Potrero. There were 14 stations operating, and over 50 people came by! CRPD has said we need permits to hold the event there in the future. This is certainly possible, but misses […]

  • μField Day July 16

    We’ve all survived ARRL Field Day, so it’s time for…another field day! The next µField Day will be this Sunday, July 16th, from 1100 to 1500 as usual, back at the Rancho Potrero West Parking Lot again. CVARC is currently holding a General License class, and the students will be there to get a taste […]

  • μField Day June 17

    ARRL Field Day is approaching, June 24th. So who would be crazy enough to to that TWICE in a month? Yeah, that’s right. June 17th at Rancho Potrero, 11:00am to 3:00 pm as usual. If you’re participating at any of Ventura County’s three FD sites, and you haven’t fired up your mobile HF radio since […]

  • μField Day at Dudley House May 13th

    Another special edition of µField Day is coming…with the Ventura County Amateur Radio Club, at their wonderful home digs at the Dudley House in Ventura. It was a fantastic location last year, with plenty of room plus all mod cons like restrooms and a kitchen. Lots of trees for antennas, lots of really great people. […]

  • April μFD In The Books

    Another µFieldDay in the books…what a beautiful day for some portable ham radio. About 30 people came by, with 9 HF stations set up. As always, some cool antennas ideas, from N6QDI’s surprisingly effective magmount on his car to NS6X’s complicated but gorgeous Buddihex. KD6IEZ was working out some end-fed issues with a few antennas […]
