As maybe most of you are aware, myself and Chip -n1mie- are members fo the Radio Amateur Society of Norwich (RASON) where Chip is also President. We would like to formally invite CTRI to our Field Day festivities at Giddings Park on Route 207 in Franklin, CT. Chip has placed us on the ARRL Field Day Locator page. Last year we ran 6A and had a good time.
We are hoping to set up 6A again this year, but expect to be down two stations this year (20m cw and 80m ph). CTRI has a wealth of great operators and I think we could make a great team together. We would like help in all the areas, setup, operators, and breakdown. If you can set up stations, that is great. I will be at the field Friday night for security if you want to come early to either stay or drop something off. Campers (dry camping) and tents are welcome.
Operating tents or screen houses, stations, generators, operating desks and chairs along with computers (we do network logging with N1MM Logger) are needed.
Giddings Field is a large field with lots of trees for wire and room for yagis. More importantly there are bathrooms!
I have been tasked with setting up the kitchen this year. I am working on a menu that should not leave anyone hungry! We are providing breakfast, lunch, and dinner Saturday, and breakfast and lunch on Sunday. I expect to have plenty of coffee and water available as well as munchies throughout the day and night.
The next RASON meeting is May 16 at 7:45pm at the Norwich City FD HQ, with the final RASON FD meeting on June 20 just before FD. That meeting will have training on N1MM Logger. We get extra points for a training session related to ham radio.
Please contact Chuck or Chip, or, reply to his thread with availabilty.
