President's Corner

July 2017

Field Day 2017 is over and we have submitted the paper work to ARRL. As with past years there is a large list of persons that put in the extra effort that resulted in a successful Field Day for the club.

Jay Greenough, WJØX, did a great job coordinating the event again this year. The new location presented some new challenges. Bill Warrington, KC4TKL, quickly developed and improved networking plan for the logging which worked faultlessly ... until the generator ran out of gas and the UPS battery was drained. We have talked about expanding the solar ability to the network for next year. Brian Short, KCØBS, served as the head coach for the Get On The Air station At times, the Salvation Army communication vehicle was standing room only, as Coach Brian explained amateur radio capabilities. Norma Hatfield, WØKC, and her testing team occupied the testing tent. The National Guard unit was a great addition to our Field Day event Saturday. We hope to have them back next year.

Channel 41 meteorologist Gerard Jebaily, WX4STM, spent just over two hours with us and made a couple of contacts. He included his visit that evening with video chips during the news broadcast. The weather could not have been better starting Friday  afternoon through Sunday afternoon.
