STATION INFORMATION:

We will have AMOS II with the antenna trailer and many other antenna configurations available for use.  In the event
that you plan on bringing your own personal set up, please remember to bring all of your necessary gear (portable table,
battery power, radio, mic, coax, antenna, headset etc.)

In an effort to avoid any transmission interference, we will have band assignments for the different bands recognized by
ARRL Field Day.  Please help by adhering to band allocations that will be posted.  In the event that you want to operate
on a “band in use” accommodations can be made to get you in an area that avoids interference.  
** Please see Tom or Danny for assistance**
