I made a couple dozen SSB contacts in the NA QSO party just to see if my radio (and I) remembered how to do SSB. 
Me and my radio did OK, but 20 meters was not at its best

GA All.

I have just finished editing the latest, what I call, 'The Pittsburgh Area Events Calendar'.
It is an activity that I have been doing for a long time. The information is used to disseminate local area, and to some extent, outside area ham radio activities.
It is obtained from various local and national sources. It is also read on the Monday Night Two Rivers ARC club net, that starts at 8pm ET on the
146.73 MHz
WA3PBD repeater.

You may use the information, but please give credit to the Two Rivers ARC.

You can find the document at:

Hey Mike,

Yeah, we know the WC TN ARES people well. If you forget the hyphen in our domain, you get them (wc-ares.org - us vs. wcares.org -them). We have worked them on HF a few times.

In 2011 people were giving up by like 2pm and going inside for A/C, that was one of the hottest years on record, major drought, like 110*F  that Saturday. Was like 90 early Sunday morning and by tear-down @ 1pm CDT, was back over 100.

This weeks should be fun!

I can remember when i lived in Williamson County TENNESSEE (metro Nashville), I operated Field Day with the county ARES group. I volunteered to do the overnight CW shift. We were outside, no tent or pavilion, and I still needed a 42-inch industrial fan blowing on  me to keep me cool from midnight til 5 am!  That was the last FD I did in Tennessee!Â

But as far as Winter Field Day is concerned, I can think of  a lot of different things to do in the Northeast in late January, but sitting outside operating  a radio isn't one of them!!

Fine! They can suffer in the snow while we are in normal clothes. :-)

Might get chilly at night, but days will be awesome....
Friday
Sunny, with a high near 60. North northwest wind 5 to 10 mph.
Friday Night
Mostly clear, with a low around 39.
Saturday
Sunny, with a high near 63.
Saturday Night
Partly cloudy, with a low around 44.
Sunday
Mostly sunny, with a high near 65.

Listen out for Whiskey Charley Five Echo Oscar Charlie WC5EOC. (Williamson County 5 Em Op Center) Working as 5I STX (since some will be in campers or the trailer, we're classed as Inside...smh)
We will be at an RV park on the north side of Lake Georgetown (N of AUS), a bunch of us in campers and the ARES comms trailer in the midst of it all (we plan to run off the 12KW Cummins diesel gene in it that really is quiet!).
At last count, we have 9 spaces reserved, which will give us plenty of room to deploy long wire antennas and stuff.....
Ive been assigned COML and COMT for the event, running the "testing area", a spot where people can bring radios and ants to be checked out/tested/taught how to setup/play with.
So more than likely Ill get to call CQ around 1-2am CST :-)
I will have my Arrow antenna and printouts, to try to get that easy 1500 bonus by working 1 Q over a satellite.

We will be operating Winter Field Day from the clubhouse grounds this weekend coming up. We will be operating from the pavilion.

I know I plan on oping as I can that weekend. Richard was asking me about some aspects of the rules. I said "Rules? Theirs rules? I guess I should read those?"

Here is the link to the rules.

Geeez Bob making folks read stuff... that will limit the participation.
Remember, there’s no such thing as bad weather... just poor clothing choices....

We’re only running 1 radio QRP, so LMK if you want to operate and when you want to operate and we’ll make sure you have a spot... otherwise you just be standing around getting cold ... as opposed to sitting operating, getting cold.  

Also, we did this last year and made it to 6th position in the US.
