      What frequencies do you plan on using. Are you going to be on 10 meters? This might get some of the techs to give HF a try.

        Is SPAR still viable? Is it actually running the 2012 winter field day? The rules for winter field day refer to 2011, NOT 2012. No results for 2011 are

          Just curious. Sounds like fun. However, I'll be operating the CQ 160 Meter contest - see http://www.cq160.com/rules.htm for details of this event.

          Oh, and another "outdoor Field day" is coming up on February 4 is F)reeze Y)our B)... O)ff, an event which promotes low power operating outdoors. See http://www.azscqrpions.com/fybo2009rules.html Note back in 2007 (I believe it was 2007, three of us went to Hell (yes, Hell, Michigan, an unincorporated crossroads near Pinckney,) and operated Feld Hell (a version of Hellschriber) plus CW during the 2007 event.

          Note: I've though of going to Paradise, Michigan, for FYBO some year, but that's waaayyy up in the Upper Peninsula, near Whitefish Point, about 300 miles from where I live, so I haven't managed the trip yet.

          GL to all in Winter Field Day 2012! If you happen to lengthen your wavelength down to 160 metres, give us a shout.

              With zero results posted from 2011, it's a sure way to discourage
              future participation.

              I'm glad to see it on the ARRL contest calendar.
