ARRL Field Day June 23/24 2007

The Shreveport Amateur Radio Association is again hosting ARRL Field Day
at the Pavilion near the Arthur Te ague Parkway Boat Launch Ramp

All are welcome, Hams and non Ham Radio OPS alike
A special station will be provided with a Licensed radio "coach" for those wishing to talk on the air

We are also operating 3A with one of those stations set up for those ops that prefer a slower QSO rate, in other casual operation versus "contest style"

We welcome amateurs from other clubs and even non club members
to join us

Hamburgers and Hot dogs will be cooked Saturday and everyone is welcome while the supplies last, donations are welcome but not required for the food and drinks consumed.

Bottom line is we will have fun and we want as many people from the public as well as fellow Ham radio ops to come join us !

Those that enjoy working at a faster pace are encouraged to step up to the plate in either the Phone or CW Trailer and work em fast and furiously as they can

The scenery on the Red River is always pleasant on the eyes
the camaraderie is bar none !

Those that wish to assist in set-up
we begin that task around 3 pm Friday June 22

10 meters was open most of today to major parts of the US

So we may have 4 bands to plan on for a change on FD

Marsh, thanks for "volunteering"
as the FD Chairman and all of your support

We are going to have a blast next week-end

I am still worn out form just a few hours of sleep at the FD site during this week-end

But wow what a Turn out on Friday for set-up
and just as good of a team as anyone could hope for for taking down all the gear

Our FD effort was a definite success

While the bands were not great, the comraderie was awesome

I will have a complete FD report in a new post early this week

But now I am off to mow the yard :)
