I plan on being there on Friday as well to scout everything out and do some early prep for antennas.
We are presently up to 15 survey responses. If anyone hasn't already completed the survey, please do! We're counting on each and every one of you out there to make this the best Field Day ever!
Remember to invite your family and friends to the event! Field Day is an event open to and even encouraging the public to see what we hams do. Promote the event throughout the week on any nets or regular conversations you might participate in... I have been! This is crunch time!
Thanks and 73!
I'm going to be there on Friday around Noon myself and plan to be
there until Dinner as I will likely end up working the late night
shift Saturday (12AM-6AM) and could use a helper or two. Past
history has shown a light crew available after midnight. :)
If you get KK6OKU's Chameleon setup off the North balcony and Juan's
hex or A4S on the ARES tower done before Noon (the hex is suggested)
that will just leave the Carolina Windom and my Chameleon to setup
when I arrive. KF4DKW and I walked the beverage antenna already and
it just required minor trimming.
One part of Field Day that is often forgotten is the take down when
it's done. If you are around Sunday at 2PM please also consider
coming out for a little bit to help take down and clean. I've taken
down antennas myself after FD but it goes really slow.
Hope to see you there!
