QRP in the Park – Lakeland, Florida

How Do You Do It?

QRP In the Park–Lakeland
is your chance to show the rest of us how you do it!
 

CFL QRP Group 

Lots of ways to do QRP!

For the past several months we have considered traveling to nearby communities in Central Florida to help QRP operators connect with one another. We’ve gotten a good response from hams in Lakeland and Port Orange areas, and we hear of active groups in the Melbourne and Daytona Beach areas. Lakeland has an advocate, Ren KG4BAS who contacted us about getting together and a possible Central Florida QRP Group in Lakeland. WAHOO!

 

 

 

 

 

We’re excited to see the interest and look forward to our first meet up Saturday 14 May, 2011 at Lake Parker Park in Lakeland at 0900. Here’s directions from Ren:
I-4 West to exit 32.

Make left onto 98S and go .4 miles to Griffin Rd.

Make left and go .7miles to the end of Griffin Rd.

Make  right onto Lakeland Hills Blvd and go .3 miles to Granada.

Make  left onto Granada and go .2 miles to Gate 2 entrance of Lake Parker on left.

Make left into entrance and go to the first Gazebo on the right. 

Hope you can join us. Bring something to drink and snack on, your QRP gear, operate, show n tell, get ideas for your portable ops and enjoy the outdoors.

Questions? Contact Ren or Kelly K4UPG.  See ya in the park!

72,
Kelly K4UPG, Jim K4AHO, Ren KG4BAS and the Central FL QRP Group!
