Field Day 2020 Changes

In light of the massive jump in Covid-19 cases the board and field day team are changing the plan for field day operation.
We will not have stations operating from the Hurst ball fields. The RV station is cancelled.
We ask all members who have HF capabilities to operate from their QTH and we invite all members to join a club zoom session which will be up for the 24 hours field day operations are happening. The zoom session URL is: https://w5hrc.org/clublivefd2020
Per ARRL rule changes for 2020 members can submit their log entries and affiliate them with W5HRC when submitting. The ARRL will combine the entries and publish the result for the club. Heres the URL: http://www.arrl.org/temporary-rule-waivers-for-arrl-field-day-2020
Let’s all get on the air for field day starting at 1PM and operate through Sunday at 2PM .. Join Zoom for the Group Session and come and go while your operating.
Please pass this news to all other members.
Protect yourself from Covid-19 Catch you on the Air
