We are renewing our unique partnership with “Skyscrapers” for our third Field Day from the Seagrave Observatory – thus a comfortable indoor operating venue. What has made the first two operations FUN from all accounts has been the fantastic operating site, the camaraderie of everyone pitching in to help, no heavy duty tower installations, and not to forget – great culinary delights.
