Winter Field Day

PDF

Winter Field Day will again be held at Wesselman Park tomorrow, Saturday, January 28th.

We will start set up about 10:30 hrs. The event starts at 13:00 hrs local time.
The exact location depends on the wind and weather. If the wind is out of the South we will use
the shelter near the tennis courts, otherwise we will use the main one facing the golf course. We should be easy to find.
Chris (KE9YK) will again bring bean soup and corn bread. (always a big hit). You can bring some side dishes or deserts if you desire, bring your drink and perhaps a lawn chair.
The club will have at least one SSB station and possibly a CW station. Please come by and support your club.

Field Day 2016

PDF

CQ Field Day, CQ Field Day

Field Day weekend is June 25-26 2016, and this year we will set up the TARS Field Day operation at the Red Cross facility on Stockwell Rd in Evansville.  We are excited to try a new location this year, and invite everyone to come out and see what its all about!  We will start setting up on Saturday June 25 around 9AM, and will set up at least 3 radio stations plus a GOTA (Get On The Air) station.  The GOTA station's sole purpose is to allow folks who rarely or never have operated HF radio to get on the air and make some contacts with the assistance of a seasoned Ham Operator to show them the ropes!  So bring your family and friends and come on out to Ham Radio Field Day at the Red Cross on June 25th and 26th 2016.

Ham Operators, please plan on coming out and operating a station for a period of time.  We will operate the full 24 hours so if you are a night owl and want to operate some overnight that would be great.  Or any time- come on out and help us operate.  All ham operators are welcome to work a station.

This is always a very fun exciting weekend and I hope you are planning to join us when you can.  I would love to see a record turnout.

Also if you are new to ham radio you are especially invited.  There is no better way to learn about antennas and setting up radio stations that watching or helping other hams who have done it before.  We always welcome new hams!

Hope to see you all there!  73!

John N9oL
