Battle of Picacho Peak Operating Event

March 10, 2018

0900 to 1500

Our March operating event will commemorate the Battle of Picacho Pass, the westernmost battle of the American Civil War. 

We will operate from the Ironwood Group Area at Picacho State Park on March 10 from 0900 to 1500.  The site has rest rooms, picnic ramadas with tables, BBQ grill, running water, ample parking, and AC power.  OVARC will provide one HF station signing K7T. 

You are welcome to bring your own equipment, especially HF antennas. 

K7AZT has devised techniques for measuring efficacy of HF antennas and will demonstrate these techniques on-site. 

Bring your appetites because our grillmeisters K4WBR and W2HZ have promised a hot lunch. 

You'll want to bring a chair unless you enjoy cold concrete benches. 

Admission to the park costs $7 per carload

Ironwood group area is immediately west of the visitor center.
