Field Day Draws Closer

Hi folks,
First and foremost, the Club Field Day web page can be found here:

Field Day 2019 is 23 days out and it's time to start thinking about club participation. We will be setting up at the Roth Family Woodlot in Tedrow/Wauseon again this year, and since we usually only run the 24 hour period, we can begin setup after 8:00pm on Thursday, June 20. Remember the event starts on Saturday, June 22 at 2:00pm.

If you are bringing your rig and are planning on running the full 24 hour contest, let us know what bands and modes you are capable of running (remember your license class restrictions, you can only run where you are licensed for). If you have a laptop for running the logging software please bring it along, along with your rig and antenna system. Make sure to bring plenty of power extension cords to tie into the generator, as well as plenty of antenna feed line so we are not setting up on top of each other.

On the note of laptops, we run a networked logging software which aids immensely in filing the report with the ARRL, as well as keeping track of who is running on the allowed bands and modes. This software will work with Mac, Windows, and Linux.

Please keep in mind we run 100 watts or less to stay in our category. If you are not planning on running the full length of contest, please note that in your reply. Consider sharing antenna/rig space with another participant that might also want to only run part of the time. Remember
that we are restricted to only three simultaneous modes on each band: CW, Digital, and Phone. All bands are open except 12, 17, 30, and 60.

If this is your first time running Field Day, or if you have been doing this for years, please take the time to read through the contest rules here:
