LAST UPDATE

FIELD DAY EQUIPMENT

Thanks to everyone who is bringing the items we need for Field Day. While we probably have enough to get by, there are a few area where we could use just a little more.

GENERATOR - We have only one at this point

AC EXTENSION CORDS - You can never have enough.

CO AX - Same thing. The more the better.

HEADPHONES - One more will probably do it.

The "official" US Weather Service prediction for Field Day:
Friday
Sunny, with a high near 84. North northwest wind around 10 mph.
Friday Night
Mostly clear, with a low around 51. North northwest wind around 15 mph.

You can obtain the new version of the logging software (5.4) from the N3FJP website, http://n3fjp.com/fieldday.html . You must first uninstall any N3FJP field day logging program presently on your computer. If you have any questions, check out the link entitled "Steps to upgrade from previous versions" or call me.

BTW, I need your current email address.

I'm light on radio gear, so it will be two HTs for me.
I will bring some firewood and a couple chairs.
