**We've cancelled this year's club gathering for NVIS Day due to rainy weather**
Feel free to participate from your own location if you want to experiment with a new or old NVIS antenna.


The Ashtabula County Amateur Radio Club will be participating (conditions permitting) in the 2018 edition of NVIS Day on April 28, 2018. The club will have the trailer available at the Lampson Road staging area at 9am for setup and the event runs from 10am until 4pm Eastern. The weather for this event in our area has typically been on the windy and cold side, so please dress warmly. The only shelter from the wind is inside the trailer. There are restroom facilities at the site.
NVIS Day started right here in Ashtabula County with K8CY, lead by silent key, Bob Woodworth - WD8PVB, as way of experimenting with Near Vertical Incident Scattering antennas. Bob's interest led to a statewide event for other hams to learn more about this type of radio communication.
For more information on the event and NVIS, see the Ohio Section Ares site.
