The continued discussion was had on getting an internet connection at the main repeater shack for the purpose if IRLP and EchoLink, as well as DMR.
Just got a call from Delta PD, we are not need for the chicken run, so they want us at THE DELTA PD! At 10 AM, NOT at the tent. Get this out to everyone we can as soon as possible.
The transmitters and antennas are stowed away for another year as we wind down Field Day 2021. First, a huge thank you to everyone who ventured out to the Woodlot, despite the threats of never-ending rain (that thankfully never happened). It was great to have so many of our newest club members present to observe and even try their hand at contesting on HF. I also wanted to thank directly KD8PUD for arranging our Fulton County 911 coordinator for a site visit today. There will be more on our conversation with Richard Kilgour coming soon, especially how we can have our emergency services efforts tied more directly to the county. We were also treated to a site visit from our ARRL Ohio Section Manager, Tom Sly, who took time away from his radio club to venture around the state, making a stop in our little corner.

Turning attention back to Field Day, if you plan on running a radio during Field Day, or if you are planning on helping an operator log QSOs, it will help to familiarize yourself with the logging program we use. It does require a laptop, but the software will run on just about any version of windows down to XP, along with macOS and Linux. If you have an older laptop not used for anything, it is probably ideal for this software. The only requirement is the laptop has an 802.11g as a minimum WiFi controller.
If you do not have a laptop suitable (and think twice about bringing your high-end laptop out to the Field), let me know, I have several repurposed older models which I don't care if they get rained on or something accidentally spilled on them.
The software for Windows can be downloaded here: http://k8bxq.org/tmp/fdlogexe.zip
There is no installer, just unzip it to the desktop, open the folder and run fdlog.exe. Contact KD8KBU@arrl.net if you need it for Linux/macOS.
