Field Day 2007
Field Day 2007 is rapidly approaching. Setup will begin June 23rd, Saturday morning around 8 AM, with operations for score starting at 1 PM. Location will be the same as the past five years --- "Coot's Crossing" Pavilion #2 at Bonita Lakes Park in Meridian. Talk-in will be on the W5FQ repeater (146.700). Please see map below.
Debbie (KD5JYJ) is heading up the details on the food. This year we are going to have Piggly Wiggly cook the BBQ chicken for us. Serving time will be around 5 PM on Saturday evening June 23rd. As in years past, many of you have brought along a dessert. This has always worked out well and many of us will appreciate you doing so again this year. Please keep in mind that this only a suggestion and not a requirement.
We hope to see all of the MARC members and encourage you to invite a friend. Non-member hams from the area are always welcome to come operate with us as well. 73, Darrell W5MAV
Antenna Class / Building Session
Our antenna building project was poorly attended, but the four of us that did participate had a good time. We designed and built a six meter beam out of rope, wire, and bamboo. We were blessed with some rain just before we got to try it out on the air. We will try to have our project antenna available for you to see during the Field Day event on June 23rd and June 24th. Hope you will try to attend. 73, Darrell W5MAV
Meeting Location Changed
One last reminder that our weekly Saturday morning breakfast / coffee drinking has been changed to The Checker Board Restaurant on South Frontage Road next to The Best Western. Effective immediately, we will not be meeting formally at Queen City Truck Stop. Please help pass the word. We don’t want someone waiting for other amateurs at the truck stop, while others are at the Checker Board Restaurant. See you at The Checker Board Restaurant on Saturday. 73, Darrell - W5MAV
