ARRL Field Day is coming up later this month on June 25th and 26th and runs 24 hours from 1pm Saturday to 1pm Sunday. We will be back at Edmond Fire Station 5 on Covell just East of I-35. The plan is to run 5A (5 simultaneous transmitters) on generator power for the duration.
Here is the event schedule:
5pm Friday, June 24th – Set up computers and computer network and other basic prep work
8am Saturday, June 25th – Meet to begin antenna and radio setup
1pm Saturday, June 25th – Field Day Begins
6pm Saturday, June 25th – EARS Field Day Dinner
1pm Sunday, June 26th – Field Day Ends and Cleanup Begins
3pm Sunday, June 26th – Cleanup Ends
We will need members to help provide radios to use, help with set up and tear down, operators for the 24 hours and more.
Also, our next club dinner is planned for Saturday, June 25 to go along with Field Day.
We still could use a couple of radios. If you are able to supply a radio or help out in any other way, please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you’re planning to join us at any time during Field Day, please take a minute to answer a handful of questions about your availability. If you’re thinking about participating but need some time to nail that down, please answer the questions as best as you can and our Field Day Coordinator, Steven Christy (N5ZQ) will be in touch with you. Thanks!
Please start making plans to attend and help out! Visitors are welcome!
