Winter Field Day 2018: GO

greenlight

It looks like the rain will be over before the event begins, so Winter Field Day is a GO for this Saturday, January 27th, 2018. Setup will begin at Dreyfuss Point at 10:00 AM, operating will begin at 1:00 PM, and the Lecture and Lab will take place at about 11:00 AM.

For the Lecture and Lab, we’ll be doing a 2-meter antenna build. Bring $5.00 and your choice of connector to fit an RG-58 cable…you’ll be building a neat roll-up J-pole. A soldering iron might be helpful, but we should have some there. Even if the official time is 11:00 AM, we’ll keep materials around for anyone who comes out and wants to add a great antenna to their HT or portable rig.

Not only will the rain be gone, but the weather should be sunny and warm. Come on out and join us!
