As it did all summer long, it rained! But undaunted by the weather, 13 RANV members and family got together for our Summer Picnic at Kill Kare State Park. We set up on the porch of the main house, where it was dry and it provided a nice wind block. Temperatures were quite comfortable. We still managed to get a station on the air with a low dipole and ran some 40 contacts as W1V.
