Field Day Antenna Crew Volunteers Needed

We are still in need of more volunteers for the FD Antenna Crew. Volunteers must be at the Field Day site by 10 am Saturday June 23rd (the morning of Field Day) to help set up the antennas for all of the Field Day Stations. No special expertise or experience is necessary, each station Captain will provide tools, equipment and supervise antenna construction for their station. We are looking for a minimum of 15 volunteers this year. It should be fun, as well as a good learning experience. To volunteer please simply send me (Tony WA8AR) an email: tromito99@gmail.com Subject: Antenna Crew Include Your name and call sign. Last Year we had all of the antennas up and operating just after noon.

And thanks to those members who have already Volunteered!!

Field Day BOX Truck Load UP – Help Needed

We will be renting a box truck to transport the vast majority of the equipment we will need to and from the Field Day site. We will need a crew of 9 to 10 volunteers to help load the truck. Equipment will be pre-staged as much as practical to make this process more efficient. Loading should begin at 6:00 pm at the club site on Friday June 22. I doubt that loading will take much more than an hour. If you can help with loading the truck please send me (Tony WA8AR) a separate email: tromito99@gmail.com subject: Box Truck Load Up Include your name and Call Sign. We are also going to need a group of volunteers to travel back to the club site for unloading. Please indicate if you want to help with the unloading too. If you can only work one end of the job that is fine, just let me know.
