The month of June continued to be a active radio month in Missouri. Hours posted for Field Day lead the list followed by training ops and SkyWarn nets. Field Day was a hot one this year with temps in the high 90s. I hope everyone had a fun and interesting Field Day. The next big activity for ARES is the Simulated Emergency Test in October.
