      To all HARC members;

      Field Day is a few weeks away!  We're planning on having an early bird setup on Friday at 5:00 PM, and another early setup at 8:00 AM on Saturday for those who can't make it on Friday.  Please note the times and the band captains below. 

      As of right now, we're still planning on using the N3FJP Field Day logging software, available for download here: http://www.n3fjp.com/fieldday.html

      I am planning on getting together for an Education and Training session this Friday prior to the event to get us all up and running with the software and linked up via the MeshNet.
      I'll be getting the license for this software and will provide it to the band captains at the meeting. The fall-back is in the morning Saturday. 

      If you think you may need anything, Please let me know as soon as possible! 

      I'm still hoping to accomplish our goal of a K8DAA, 6A, MI exchange again this year, but we're an operator/band captain short.  If there is anyone out there who would like to play radio on the SSB portion of 40 meters, or play digital on any band available for use, please let me know. 

      The location has plenty of room for us to spread out over, so if we can exceed the current bands it would be awesome!  Another Digital station on the bands could really rack up the points!

      I also don't have a volunteer to man our "free" VHF station.  This isn't necessarily an all-night and day position, and could be done quite effectively by a Technician class operator on FM in the simplex portions of the bands. If you're interested in trying that for a few hours or for the entire exercise, please let me know. 

      Kim Lobert, N8KAL has volunteered to man the grill again this year for the dinner, so you know we're going to be well-fed! 

      If lack of a HF radio is holding you back, the Holland Amateur Radio Club has a few radios that we might be able to liberate for use in the field if we can get operators to run them!

      If you've never played radio in a Field Day before, stop out and pickup a microphone or tap on a key for a while!
