All Aboard!!

So far we’ve got five of us who have declared an intention to participate in the Oakville ARC’s Field Day.

Five is all we need to run an SSB and a digital station and we’re starting to get organized.

We’ve got two rigs and at least two antennas so far plus a couple of manual tuners. I recommend manual tuners instead of internal or external auto-tuners as auto-tuners under Field Day conditions often find the extraneous R.F. floating around too hard to handle.

We’re confirming the Bronte site’s availability and signing up station managers and other opportunities.

I would think that we’ll be closing off the volunteer manager sign-up list sometime around mid May so the managers can start organizing operators by putting names on a list and making sure they’ve got their equipment nailed down.

If you want help out, send me an email to ve3hg@cogeco.ca
