Field Day Site Set

Last year, when Johnson County Parks and Recreation closed the observation tower site in Shawnee Mission Park, it offered the club Field Day space at the nearby "Hutton Farm". The farm was easy to find, offered plenty of separation for operating groups and enough shade to keep operators comfortable, all of which made it popular with club members and visitors.

We're going back.

Look for the site on 87th street, just west of the "3&2" baseball facility and the Ridgeview entrance to the Shawnee Mission Park. You will see hams and antennas from 87th street.

See you June 23 and 24.

President's Corner

June 2018

Field Day month is here and things are falling into place. We will be at the Hutton farm again the year. The Farm is just west of the 87th street entrance of Shawnee Mission Park. We will start set up Friday at 1:00 pm and should have everything up and tested by 7:00 pm for the club’s meeting. Yes, the June 22 meeting will be at the Hutton Farm.

We will have a solar station again this year. Bill Warringtom, KC4TKL, has the network ready. This year the network will be running on our solar power system. That means that, this year, the network will not fail when someone (me) falls asleep and does not refuel the generator.

Talk to your neighbor, coworker, friend or youth group and extend an invitation to visit the site. As always, the “Get on the Air” station will be set up to help them make some over-the-air contacts.
