Field Day, June 22-23, 2019
Undoubtedly, ARRL Field Day is the most popular amateur radio event of the year. Somebody sure had a great idea years ago! Field Day offers something for everyone starting with emergency preparedness training, then setting up a power source and antennas, radio gear, camping, picnicking, an operating table, operating all kinds of gear for a variety of modes. Then there’s the social aspect providing a wonderful opportunity to get to know fellow hams and club members in a very different setting than a club meeting. Field Day truly is a fabulous part of our hobby.
Some members might not be aware that VP Mike Marganski, KE8HBK actually began work on this year’s event last year securing our FD site permit. Thanks to Mike, we’ll again be operating at Top O’ Ledges in the Hinckley Reservation of the Cleveland Metroparks.
So, now it’s time for us all to begin the fun stuff of making sure all aspects of the event are covered by someone. You know, all the details that can be easily overlooked – like tools, food, water, tents, lighting, bug spray, etc., etc. So join us Monday, June 3rd and help us make this another memorable Field Day.
