Titan Missile Museum Outing

 

We do an annual Ham Radio field trip to the Titan Missile Museum, in Sahuarita, AZ.

Of special note, to us Hams, is that there is a free to use, large Discone Antenna, located on site. This is what we go down there for.

As a bonus, you can, for a fee, tour the Missile Museum, as well.

Afterwards, as Ham, also stands for "Have Another Meal", we eat lunch afterwards, before going home.

 

As always, we do ride-sharing, with others, so we don't all go down in our own cars. This makes the trip so much more enjoyable.

This season, the trip will be Thursday, December 19, 2019.
