Field Day Weekend, 2021

Hello all,

Excellent meeting with some very exciting topics again tonight.  The presentations shared tonight, as well as the zoom recording of the meeting have been uploaded to the shared folder of the club google drive.

I am personally very excited by the prospect of the IPRC getting back out into the field and doing some in person radio exercises and making some contacts for summer field day weekend on 26 and 27 June this year.  I have never been able to participate in a field day with this club, and I have the COVID induced cabin fever something fierce, so I am all in.  I have a small pop up camper trailer, a generator, deep cycle batteries, a solar charging array, and a plethora of radios and antennae.  I will definitely be participating in some capacity at one location or another, and I would very much like to camp out for the weekend in my trailer on site.

Let’s use this blog entry to have an interactive discussion about field day weekend.  We would like to know who is interested, what you would like the event to look like, and if you have any good ideas with regard to stations to set up, people and groups to invite, possible locations, etc.

I would like to see the club set up some EZ ups and tables, and some signage advertising who we are and what we are doing.  I would like us to set up a grill and serve some burgers, hot dogs, veggie burgers, ships, sodas, etc., and make a real event out of it.  I would like to hear what your ideas are to make it a fun and productive event for the club.

Thank you, and I look forward to the discussion about this very exciting club event.
