Field Day 2016

posted Jun 13, 2016, 7:01 PM by Greg Fitch

Help is always needed and appreciated to run Field Day. Come for an hour, come for the afternoon, for a morning, for the day, for the night. Whatever you can give. Help operate a radio. Be part of the kitchen crew. All stations are run with two people - one to operate the radio and make the contacts, and one to log in the contacts made. Not comfortable with HF or the logging system? No problem. We will show you. Maybe you are an night owl. Always looking for night relief. And yes, we do operate all night long. 

Help needed with meal prep (about an hour or so before the meal) and with clean up after the meal. Finger food for snacks and desserts also needed.

Friday afternoon, June 24th, help is needed, starting at 3:00 pm, to set up the antennas. Saturday morning the stations need to be set up and radios tested. Also help needed to set up the kitchen. Sunday after lunch, around 2:00 pm, everything, radios, antennas, kitchen, needs to be dismantled and packed up and the building cleaned.

Please invite your friends and associates to come and take a tour and perhaps try their hand at making a radio contact. And don't forget the kids. We enjoy getting them on the air.
