Please remember that this Saturday and Sunday is Field Day !!!
We need some members to show up at around 6 AM Saturday (yea – I know that is early Ha Ha), to secure the covered shelters that we will use. Mike Newman is one of the early risers, and will help lead that effort.
Some of the other members are meeting at Cracker Barrel by the mall around 6 AM. Contact AB4IQ if you wish to join the group there.
The main setup effort will start around 8 AM.
Please come out and join us for 30 minutes anytime or the entire operating period. Everyone is welcome.
Field Day is always the fourth full weekend of June, beginning at 1800 UTC (1:00 PM Central Time)Saturday and running through 2059 UTC Sunday. Field Day 2014 is June 28–29.
