Field Day 2017

posted Jun 15, 2017, 11:48 AM by Chuck Stroud

As many of you know, since we couldn't find a public field day site I've offered up the use of my garage.  I'll have my radio (Yaesu FT-897D), Autotuner, computer logging N3FJP, Winkeyer, and a G5RV antenna.  We can use it as long as someone wants to be there and get on the air.  If no one schedules to work Sunday morning we'll probably shut it down Saturday night when everyone is gone, but I'm fine if someone wants to get on Sunday morning too.

The station will have SSB and CW capabilities (sorry, no digital planned) - you can run 5-100 watts - your choice.  For CW I'll have N3FJP interfaced to the radio for sending code, however, if you want to use an iambic key you may want to bring one.  Mine (AZ SQRPions paddle) is OK, but not conducive to major long-term use.

I'll have everything set up either Friday or Saturday morning at the latest, and operations officially kick off Saturday at 1:00 PM until 1:00 PM Sunday.  We would be thrilled if a lot of you would come and operate - I think you'll have fun - but come regardless to hang out.  If you want to schedule a time to get on, let me know - first come, first serve.  If someone wants the night shift, I can also offer up a bed or couch to crash in before or after your shift.

We may or may not have the spread that K0CD will have, it depends on how tight the President and Treasurer are with the $$, but we can use my grill to fire up whatever we do have.  We'll also try to have some beverages and snacks available.

The location is listed on the ARRL site tracker, and my address is on QRZ.com, but here it is also:

14288 Woodbine St NW
Andover, MN  55304

Cell - 763-438-6769 in case you need it as well.

So there you have it - radio, shelter, food, friends - the perfect weekend!  Hope to see you there.

FYI - XYL Jill says all of this is OK and is looking forward to meeting you - she's a keeper!
