This year we will NOT be at the Observation Tower in Shawnee Mission Park. The Tower will be under construction so the area will be unusable! We have however secured another location. We will be located at the old Hutton Farm which is located just west of the 87th Street entrance to Shawnee Mission Park. See Map Below................. GPS Address is ==> 18800 West 87th Street, Lenexa, KS 66220
LOOK ===> Here is a great opportunity to learn how to opperate during a Contest: John Rayo, KØIZ, will be doing an HF operation clinic starting at 10:00 am until 1:00 pm on Field Day Saturday (24th). John has offered to share some tips and methods that many operators have found to be useful when trying to build up contacts during Special Events and Contests. ALSO, the CW Station, Digital Station, and Solar Station will offer similar tips and training.
Public Service Events 101 Presentation
Traveling the latter part of May and into June, I'm trying to write a "President's Corner" earlier. Fortunately, June is Field Day month, which has a lot of activities leading up to and surrounding it.
This year, the Shawnee Mission Park observation tower location was unavailable, which forced us to find new location. We were able to find a location that is close to the Park. It is an old farm area that is southeast of the observation tower. Access is just west of the park entrance on 87th street.
The site is not as visible to the public at the observations town site, but these is public access off on 87th street and will have sign to direction the curious. The program on May 26 will be a planning for field day the site plan for the stations and other activities. The other activities include testing and John Raydo (KØIZ) will be doing an HF operation clinic.
Please plan on bring the family to the Dinner Saturday evening at the Field Day site. As in the past we will be asking for a donation to cover the costs.
