Date   
Atlanta Hamfest June 1 Cancelled

Brad (the Voice of the Village) Berger
 

Hello fellow Hams:
 
Just in case any of you were planning on going to the Atlanta Hamfest June 1, it has been confirmed that it has been cancelled for this year.   I was told the reason is due to problems with remodeling at the location that won't be completed in time for the event.3

Coax For Field DAy

David Schoenherr
 

Speaking with Juan regarding the site set up we would like to have 500' of coax available for getting set up.

The plan is to have all 3 stations indoors (air conditioned).

I'm need to get that dropped off at my house in the next week or so.  It will be clearly marked with your call sign before it is taken to the site.
I will have a supply of duck tape to mark & secure as needed.

I also need someone with a truck to stop by here early enroute to the site for set up.

Please include in your response how many Feet you can supply.

Thanks in advance; David Schoenherr    124 Santee Way, Loudon   Ph# 262-853-0026

I probably have enough to do that, but I'm wondering why are we setting up the other 2 stations inside? Where are we running the coaxes to? Part of field day is for emergency planning. If we get called out during an emergency we may not have the luxury of air conditioning to operate in. I know more than just me will be using my station, but I would rather be outside. I will let you know tomorrow afternoon how much extra coax I have.

Re: Coax For Field DAy

 

What kind of coax? RG8, 8X?!? Let me see what I have here and how many feet.....

And I agree with Tim, Field Day is about emergency planning, and being able to work out in the field, possibly in the worst conditions imaginable. I think we need at least one station outside.

TLARC,

Final call for ARRL Field Day t-shirts.  Get your $20 (or guarantee that you'll pay) to Brad Berger today.  I'll order the shirts tomorrow.  I've added 2 shirts for Sam Howard to the list.  So far we have 10 ordered.

Field Day Food List - Round 2

Brad (the Voice of the Village) Berger
 

Hello TLARC members,

The Field Day Food Items spreadsheet has been updated with the latest information on what items folks are bringing. Please review the latest data and if you haven't raised your hand yet to bring a goodie, now is a good time to do it.

Remember, the list is not etched in stone. If you have a favorite delicacy you'd like to show off, by all means put it down. If you have some extra paper products, etc. lying around at home, here is a good place to use them.

Just send me a memo with what you're bringing and I can place your name and item on the sheet.

Thank you,
Brad Berger,  KM4OJK

Must watch video

For those who had experienced Dayton at the old Hara Arena, enjoy the video entitled “Don’t cry for me Hara Arena”.

On Memorial Day, an EF-3 tornado severely damaged the Hara Arena as it passed through the Dayton , Ohio area. From the looks of it, demolition may now be in order.

Great videos, David - thanks for sharing them. For those who had attended at Hara, you'll appreciate a comment I saw on another list that the restrooms are now probably cleaner than they've ever been.

June meeting is coming up fast

David Andrews
 

Enjoying the rain?

 

If you haven’t washed away yet, then check your calendar to make sure you’ve marked off Wednesday, June 19th for the next TLARC monthly meeting, preceded by dinner at 5:00 PM (note the time) at Z Fish House, 846 Mulberry St, Loudon with the clubs most colorful personalities. While you’re at your calendar, you might want to make certain you have June 22 & 23 circled in red ink. It’s Field Day 2019! Like Christmas, Hamcation or Dayton, it only comes around once a year. Are you ready?

 

See you soon,

 

David Andrews, N1ESK

A QRP Field Ops Adventure, by K0RGI and N2APB

George N2APB
 

Jim K0RGI and George N2APB took to the field on a fine and sunny 83-deg, low-humidity day last Saturday ... Why?  Because we could, and it was the most glorious spring day we've had yet this year! 

We went to the TVA Park on Tellico Lake, located near on the boat launch area one normally sees on the right when you turn left onto the ramp heading to Maryville. Birds in-air, boats lazily en route to some swimming hole, and a mini-park with picnic benches, parties in progress under shelters and kids splashing in a roped-off area.

We had our usual antennas unobtrusively set up (Jim's PAC-12 mini vertical and George's 4'-diameter magnetic loop) and nobody bothered us.  Not even bugs!  Over the course of about several hours we made a good handful of contacts, ranging from PA to CA (and even an LA8 in Czechoslovakia!), then we packed up to go home. A fine outing it was indeed!

72,
George N2APB & Jim K0RGI

PS:  Be sure to see the photos on the TLARC website to get a flavor that only scratches the surface of our outing.  There's even a short video ... click on it to download "QRP_Heaven.mov" to your local computer's Download folder, then double-click the  file to play it.
