FIELD DAY 2014

without comments

Field Day 2014 is just around the corner on June 28th and 29th! The Roane County Amateur Radio Club will be set up at Fort South West Point park located in Kingston. All are welcome to come out and visit with us, learn about the amateur radio service or get on the air (even if you don’t have you’re license)!

Set up will begin around 10:00 am on Saturday the 28th, with operating starting around 2:00pm. We’ll run from then, all through the night and into Sunday morning.

The address for the park is 1226 South Kentucky St., Kingston, TN 37763 and talk-in will be on the 147.015 MHz repeater (+, 110.9pl).

Note to members: If you can provide a laptop with a wireless networking card (preferred) or ethernet port, please bring it along! We will once again have a wireless (and wired if needed) network set up at the site for logging purposes. KI4FUV and KD4GT have a few spares but we seem to come up short some years. Anything from Windows 2000 or newer will work fine!
