ARRL Field Day 2017
Field Day! Yes, we are back at Tartan Park for one more
year. Almost everything will be the same as prior years, but there will
be a few changes.
Entrance will be from
the west side of the park, on Lake Elmo Ave N (Cty Rd 17). The gates
there will be the only route in. It is just south of the 45/55 MPH speed
There will not be any running water this year, so the bathrooms will not be available. Porta-potties are yet to be determined.
Saturday night meal may not be the big picnic affair it has been (due
to the water issues). The FD crew will be fed as usual.
But, we will still be a full-fledged 2A operation:
will begin about 3:00 PM Friday, June 23. Setting up the two towers,
whatever wire antenna options we choose for the year, and the GOTA
verticals and wires. CW and SSB operations again from the RVs. Same
radios, and other accessories. Basically, all over again.
Contact John, K9NJ, for CW operating position assignments. firstname.lastname@example.org
