Upcoming meeting, Lolo's working again, and Field Day

Howdy all,

Don't forget about our monthly meeting coming up this Thursday, we'll likely be discussing some Field Day details among other usual business. I'd like to mention too that the meeting is open to anyone, so if you're interested or curious about amateur radio, or if you're new to the hobby and are not yet a club member, please come out and join us at our monthly meeting.

We also have to thank Myles, VE7FSR, again for heading up the hill and getting the VE7RLO (147.320+) back on the air (on the 26th of May) with Vern VE7VGO's assistance. I'm not sure if the voting controller and/or the links to any of the other repeaters are functioning yet, but at least VE7RLO's functioning well at this time.

Thanks Myles and Vern!

Speaking of Field Day, I wanted to remind everyone early where we go - the field day location is the Philip Ranch - 5380 Jackson Road in Knutsford. Click on the link to get a map with driving directions from Aberdeen Mall.

There will be Field Day signs at the intersection of Long Lake and Jackson roads, as well as at the entrance to the Philip Ranch. Look for the club trailer and other assorted vehicles on the right hand side of the road in to the ranch.

Last year's Field Day schedule was (this year's is likely to be identical):

Thursday - Free Camping
Friday - Most people will arrive and set up camping and start antenna set ups in the afternoon
Saturday - Contesting starts at noon. At 1700 hours we have our great pot luck dinner.
Sunday - Contesting ends at noon. After that, clean up of the site.

Look for more Field Day information soon, and if you would like more info. than what we're posting, please do drop us a line!
