Hello and thanks for stopping by to check us out! We have recently upgraded our web page and hope you enjoy what you see.
OVEC will be holding Field Day 2017 at the same location as last year: 4962 Beechwood Road Cincinnati, Ohio 45244.
This year we will be operating as N8A (special event callsign to commemorate the annual K9MUL Field Day) as a 3AB station – 3 transmitters, non-commercial and non-generator power, QRP.
We will be running a GOTA station for inactive hams or unlicensed people who are interested in ham radio! This is your chance to get on the air with a coach who will guide you through making contacts.
Once again we will be experimenting with a number of different antenna types, from standard dipoles to NVIS inverted vees, and for the first time we will have a 10-15-20 meter beam.
All are welcome at our Field Day site, licensed or unlicensed. We will be having a potluck dinner on Saturday at 6:30 pm – please bring a dish or a side to share.
OVEC will be attending the MARC 2017 Hamfest as a club. The hamfest takes place on 17 June 2017 at Eastside Christian Church, located at 5874 Montclair Boulevard in Milford.
We will be selling many items that will be ham related which include radios, equipment, etc. In addition, we will be offering services for the entire ham community that we are sure will be a hit (this includes custom made ID Badges, stickers, etc. made right on the fly)!
During the entire event you can contact OVEC (Club call KD8LBS) on 447.800 Mhz Simplex. We will be actively monitoring and communicating on this frequency for the entire duration of the event.
We encourage you to stop by our booth and visit us!

We will have amateur radio operators on site that can assist any member of the public!
