Welcome to BCRO!

BCRO 2020 Field Day Official Announcement!

The Benton County Radio Operators (BCRO) will be participating in the ARRL Annual Field Day on June 27th and 28th at the private residence of Alan Katz KE0QFO Club Vice President, and Sheila Katz K0ETA Club Treasurer.

The Katz family has graciously offered to host this event due to the current state of affairs regarding public health, and limitations placed upon public gatherings.

This year the Club will not have the joy of casual public interaction with curious passersby that would occur at a typical Field Day venue, although we plan to entertain any invited unlicensed guests with an opportunity to participate with us.

Please see the Field Day 2020 Post on the forums for more information.
