21 Go Kit Workshop
The goal of this event is to help anyone who wants to put a Go Kit together, whether it be for emergencies or casual portable use. Bring whatever you have for your kit. You dont even need to be putting a kit together. If you're interested, come and ask questions, bounce ideas around, and check out what everyone else is doing. This workshop would also be helpful for SOTA, campers, portable deep woods ops, etc.

We will be discussing, but not limited to:
  • Weight Savings
  • Power Options
  • Antennas
  • QRP
  • Size Restrictions
  • Transceiver Options
  • Enclosures
This date is weather pending! If the weather goes bad, then the workshop will be rescheduled for the following Saturday, same time, same location.

Bring your Go Kit, your parts, your ideas, your aspirations, or just your body. Anyone interested is welcome.
