We are just a little over a week away from field day, below you will find the plans so far, please checkout the signup link below, this is just to give us an idea of how many people will be there and when, and get a little bit of a schedule together for the radio so that we can stay on the air, by no means is that a strict schedule or head count, please sign up for the meals you plan to be there so we can get a better idea of how many people to expect. If you have not yet paid your 2021 dues, we will be collecting throughout the weekend. Any questions feel free to reach out to the group
Bathroom situation -> the LaPorte Group has ordered a Porta Potty for the weekend
Internet situation -> we went out last weekend and programmed the microwave link down to the ground and the router/switches so we will have WiFi and ethernet available on site
Food situation -> see below
Joe and I will be getting the portable tower and big generator out to the site, it will be a couple of trips, but we are hoping to be back to the site by 3:00pm to start setting everything up.
Dinner that night will be a buy-in, we will get some pizza with the cash that everyone throws in.
Some of us will be camping out Friday night if anyone wants to join (Bring your own tent, camper, or car)
Breakfast (Maybe go out, or send someone to McDonalds?)
VE Testing will begin at 9am for anyone who shows up (please pass the word if you know of anyone looking to test, anyone who tests and sticks around after would have a chance to get on the air while sitting with someone else at the station, if you would like to sign up to take the exam or know anyone who is please click here https://signup.com/go/tBscWKB and put your name on the list
While the testing is going on we will begin station setup in the tents
Lunch Saturday will be Burgers and Brats (provided) please bring your own drinks and a side to share with everyone
Getting on the air 12 Noon Sat – 12 Noon Sunday, we will have a few stations setup, feel free to bring yours for the GOTA, or if you want to set up your gear at the station. (the signup above is just to help us fill 24 hours of people on the air, but will not be a strict schedule)
Dinner Friday is generally chip in for pizza
Several of us will be camping again Saturday night feel free to join
We will stay as long as people are willing to stay and be on the air, if we do not have people who are on the air all night we will probably pack up earlier on Sunday.
