Thanks Larry,
Parking would be a little tight here but I think it's doable.
Other than that I think it's a great site and it's awesome it's close to some trails to radio relief time.

unless we go way out to oso cap or mcgill I think this is it.

What does everyone else here think?

We've got a site!

We'll be doing field day at the mcgill campground this year,
it fits 60 people and about 20 - 25 cars.
It's at 7,500 feet in elevation and it's not far from fraizer park where miller/lockwood trail is.

The McGill Campground looks like it will be a fantastic location for Field Day...and that area of Los Padres Nat'l Forest is beautiful, especially around June...

Can't wait to start calling CQ... :mrgreen:

I'm glad you guys like it!
Can't wait!
We'll start planning out the various stations in another thread soon.
Start thinking about what bands you want to operate on and what antennas we can use.
