NoGa Summer Camp Out


"Five Days at Fort Mountain"

July 23-27, 2009


Well another Scott Sikes, KD4MSR,  DXpedition is in the books and what an outing it was.  He took us up to the "Magic Rocks" at Georgia's Fort Mountain State Park.

A group of the campers went up on Thursday to secure campsites all together.  Others came later in the day and the next day.  One group rented an entire house up near Cohutta Lodge just to be able to make the "Awards Banquet" on Saturday.  And three NoGaNauts came up just for the day on Saturday and another came up for a short shot at operating the ARS (Adventure Radio Society) "Flight of the Bumblebees" on Sunday.

We had thought that we could do a little sight seeing but between setting up and operating some QRP, we really did not have time.  We did have one team actually operate FBB from the famous rock wall referred to in Scott, KD4MSR's notes on the area that he posted on the NoGa Yahoo Groups site.
