Field Day Update

We are less than two weeks away from ARRL Field Day 2014 and we’re beginning to make final preparations for the big day.

Field Day 2014 Postcard

For those who wish to participate, we will have a quick meeting on the Monday prior, June 23rd, to conduct a quick site survey, note items of concern, discuss safety gear, and go over antenna and equipment placement. This will be your opportunity to voice suggestions and view the site with other operators as it will be conducted on-site at Chisholm Park at the Bluebonnet Pavilion beginning at 7 PM. Even if you are unable to participate on Field Day we welcome your input and all are welcome.

If you can’t make the meeting or are unable to volunteer as an operator, please come and visit us at Chisholm Park in Hurst, TX on June 28th and 29th at the Bluebonnet Pavilion.
