Anyone available this weekend? If so what days are available?

Also, should we register on the ARRL website with the location of our event (I'm not referring to the testing)?

http://www.arrl.org/field-day-locator

Registering the FD location may be dicey. The campsite has no address or PO Box. When I registered the testing session, I had these problems. The first person I spoke to would not let us provide a link to our site where driving directions and GPS coordinates were listed. On my second try, I was successful and if you look at the test information, you will see a link to our website. If you want to give it a shot with GPS coordinates or driving directions, go for it.

Saturday should be OK for a practice mast set-up.

The only additional purchases I made were some paracord, some sandbags to lay over the tripod legs for when the mast is erected, and several snaphooks like this

Any chance Dave, Jon, and I can talk you into picking up a set of whatever else we need (minus the cord) for our masts ? It would definitely save us time figuring out what to use, and where to get it... :P
So three sets are needed? Let me know and I can pick them up.

Yeah, I say yes. It certainly can't hurt to have extras, so I'll cover the cost if the other gents don't need them...
