Field Day 2017

 

 

ARRL Field Day is June 24th to June 25th, and for the club, it will be different from other years : F.A.R.S. has the opportunity to operate from two Provinces!

The primary site is the HERITAGE POINT FIRE HALL.

Located on Dunbow road between Macleod Trail and Deerfoot Trail, the site is on about 20 acres so there is plenty of room for antennas and stations.

Here is the preliminary site plan :

We’ll be operating up to 7 stations, so there are lots of opportunities for operators new and old to have fun on the air and get many contacts into the log.
We have antennas for 6, 10, 15, 20, 40, and 80 meters.

This is a great event to practice and demonstrate emergency preparedness, make radio contacts, and socialize with other radio amateurs.

Come out, enjoy coffee, burgers, dinner… Oh yeah, and some RF 🙂

Dann, VE6TD, will be heading up the local station in DeWinton and Wally, VE6BGL, will be operating in Morse, Saskatchewan.
