It's time to finalize those field day plans!
Like many of you, our field day operations are part contest and part promotion. We use the event to hone contesting skills, use alternative power, try new gear/techniques and promote the hobby we love.
Kevin K5KVN, an Alderman on the city council of Elm Springs, Arkansas, secured an "Amateur Radio Day" proclamation for the city. Read it here [PDF]. Ask your mayor to do a proclamation. It's easy!
Here is a rundown of our plans:
- Operating WR5P (for the very first time!) as category 2E from the shack of K5PO.
- Once again, the wildly popular live webcam in the shack! We will feed rig audio to the webcam, too.
- Photos uploaded throughout the event in our photo gallery.
- Videos uploaded to our YouTube channel.
- Real-time info on our various Twitter handles.
- As for anything else: we'll wing it.
