Please try to join us for while during our ARRL FIELD DAY activities next week. As in the past few years, the CRES-COOKEN field day event will be held at the Licking County INFIRMARY MOUND PARK located a few miles South of Granville on RT 37. I would especially encourage newer licensed amateurs to join us with setting up, operating stations and logging contacts. Experience is not needed, and we would love to help you experience some HF contest operating. Technician class licensed amateurs may enjoy HF operations as licensed control operators will be present to oversee station operations. When you come out to the park, a sun hat, bug spray, and comfortable lawn chair are a good idea.
The club sponsors a 2 meter net every Sunday evening at 8 pm Eastern time on its repeater (146.67/131.8) and via Echolink at W8ZPF-L (Node 782142). The net is open to everyone – you do not need to be a CRES member to join. Visitors are always welcome and encouraged to participate.
Topic: This year’s Field Day. Did you participate in FD at a club or at home. Share your weekend experience on the net.
