Winter Field Day with GARA
Winter Field Day (WFD) will take place this year starting Saturday on January 25, at 2 PM and ending Sunday, January 26 at 2 PM. Just like the ARRL Field Day. We can start setting up the Friday before (Jan. 24) no earlier than 2 PM. This year, we will be operating from Hagan Stone park, group campsite 1, the same location we used for the ARRL Field Day last June.
The current plan is to operate one HF station. Scott (ND4L) has agreed to lend us his tent for the operating station, so now all we need are volunteers and equipment. We will set up Friday afternoon starting at 2 PM, complete any remaining setup Saturday morning, and begin operating at 2 PM. We will use batteries/solar power (weather permitting), and will have a backup generator if we need it.
The WFD rules, and an equipment spread sheet that shows what equipment we need are available at the link below . The link allows you to view or download the documents. If you can provide something, please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will put it in the spreadsheet.
I plan to stay overnight Friday and Saturday, and I hope you will consider joining me. We had a great time at WFD last year, and we should do so again this year.
I will provide weekly updates over the next few weeks. I hope to see you there!
