2019 Field Day Plans

Site Layout

New for This Year
2019 will have a few tweaks over last year. The 40/15 meter station will use a Flex Radio again, but two interfaces will be available. The PC and Maestro will be used in sync with each other. The user will be able to use whatever interface they prefer, promoting the operation of an SDR radio with knobs.

Mike Johnson will be captain for the digital station. The digital station will be a dedicated effort, capitalizing on the surging popularity of the FT8 contest mode. If youíre looking to operate but donít like microphones, this will fit your style!

Are you apprehensive about operating? Do you want to have someone log for you? Do you want to log for someone else? Contact one of the station captains and sign up for an elmer. Tom Macon, Mike Johnson, Steve Dryja, and Chuck Dellis will be happy to assist you.

Back by Popular Demand
The remaining station setups are very similar to last year. Tom Macon will captain the 80/20-meter station running a loop antenna, Chuck Dellis will captain the 40/15-meter station running a dipole, and Steve Dryja and Phil Gural will captain the 6-meter station running a Yagi and a loop. Barb Garnier will be running a GOTA station for WARAC. Stop by, take a look at the operation and meet some of the up and coming operators.

The pop-up campers will be co-located close to each other. This gives us a community feel and makes moving between stations more convenient. Antenna locations will remain basically unchanged.
