Field Day 2022

Field day 2022 will be at Remsburg Park in Middletown on Saturday the 25, and Sunday the 26th.

This year we have set up a shared spreadsheet for volunteers to enter equipment and services they are willing to provide. These include

  • A Safety Officer (we have the medical kit, etc) on site.  See link below, it is basically filling out a checklist.
  • Antenna Czar to lead a small group of people to put up the antennas.
  • Two more PCs with N3FJP Field Day Logging Software installed (Call: K3ERM, Password: 35754)
  • Antenna Czar to lead a small group of people to take down the antennas on Sunday at 2pm.
  • Generator/gas/extension cords/power strips.
  • Photographer (nice to have).
  • A social media manager (nice to have).  See link below for field day public relations.
  • Someone to get the Field Day bulletin off the air.
  • Most importantly, people to operate the radios and make contacts.

This year we will run again as a 3A which means we can have 3 radio operators and three antennas running at one time (preferably on different frequencies!!).  We will also setup a GOTA station which is a station where even people that do not have licenses can get on the air.  We get bonus points for having non hams make contacts and it is also a great way to have your family and friends operate a ham radio even if they don’t have an FCC license.

To help plan we have created a signup spreadsheet.  If you are interested in participating in Field Day please answer the couple of questions so we can better plan.
