will be conducting a Field Day event on June 24-25 at
the Loxley Park, on highway 59 in Loxley.
This event will be somewhat different from past club
Field Day events as it will be held in a different
location, and on a less formal basis.
A motor home will be made available with a generator and
awning so that license holders can work either outside
under the awning, or inside the motor home. Permanent
rest room facilities are available at the park.
We are encouraging all of our members to come and join
us in this a tradition amateur radio event. At present,
we are planning for a minimum of one phone and one CW
station. Additional stations and/or modes are welcome.
If you would like to work one of the stations for just a
few minutes or just a few hours, that is encouraged -
but feel free to work longer if you can. We are hoping
that this will be as much a social get together for our
club as it will be a chance to earn points in the
competition with other ARRL clubs. An organizational
meeting will be put together soon to work out further
Notice of this event will be posted in the local
newspapers ahead of the event, as well as on the road
side the day of the event. An entry on the ARRL webpage
under Field Day Locator has already been created. We are
encouraging the public to stop by and watch us in
action, to ask questions, and maybe become involved in
our great hobby.
Please give serious thought to joining us this year, and
tell your amateur radio friends, and non ham friends.
See YOU there!!!
