Operating Field Day
- Please note that Troop 48 Hamburg, NJ (Patriot's Path Council,
Sussex District) will be active during Field Day, with the Sussex
County Amateur Radio Club. The Club station will be operational as
W2LV (I think the GOTA call will be N2IEL, if that changes, I'll re-
post). The Field Day site is outside of Newton, NJ, near the Sussex
County Community College. This is grid FN21
Troop 48 is a new organization, with the majority of our Scouts
at the younger end of the spectrum. I am Scoutmaster of the Troop,
and a ham for more than 15 years. I am the VHF band captain, but
also operate 20 and 40M.
We will have some materials for Radio and Emergency
Preparedness Merit Badges, and have invited other Scout Groups. The
Club should have big signals on 20M and 40M, as we have 4 elements
each, pointed SW from NJ. The GOTA can likely be found on 15 or 80
meters. We have 6 elements on 6M and 18 elements on 2 meters.
Please look us up, and inquire about the Scouts!
BTW: we will be active from Camp Winnebago during the July 17-22
camp session, on QRP SSB and a dipole.
