2013 Field Day is just around the corner.
Time to start planning for the annual FD effort at Four Churches Farm. Help is always needed for set up and tear down. Operators are needed to take turns at the rigs, and/or log.
Equipment is always needed for our stations on 40/80 CW, 80/40/20/15/10m SSB, etc.
Anyone wanting to give PSK/RTTY a try. Or 6m. should start planning now.
Our secret weapon on 80/40 CW ( an 80m horizontal loop at 70 ft) takes some work to get up but racks up the QSOs. Ditto The Swamp ( ie Brad/Kevins big white tent) which houses 3 stations at the west end of the grounds. And the hexx beam will make its presence felt on 20-15-10m.
All the new hams are welcome to participate, as are the not yet new hams. No license required to work the mic since licensed hams will be there too. Come and get your feet wet. You are a much needed resource to us.
More to follow as the date approaches.
