Field Day Plans
This year's event will be held at a green field site, west of Guelph just off Hwy. 7, before Breslau. The site does not have any amenities, including running water and toilets. We will be bringing in porta-potties for the event. Please bring an adequate supply of drinking water for the duration of the event. Please bring garbage bags for all refuse. We must leave the site as clean or better than we found it. No garbage can be left behind.
The location is the first left past Greenhouse Road and is on the south side of Hwy. 7. It is a gated entrance and the gate will be open and our club banner will be displayed at the entrance. The coordinates of the entrance are 43deg 29' 37.16"N 80deg24' 21.44"W for those of you with GPS units. A picture of the entrance is attached.
The site will be available for trailer delivery in the afternoon on Friday or Saturday morning if you prefer. Individual sites will be on a first come first serve basis. There is plenty of room for everyone and trees are available for antenna setup. Field Day activities will begin on Saturday and end on Sunday afternoon.
As in past Field Day events, we will be having a potluck dinner. The food list has been sent out previously, so if you have not volunteered a food item, please contact Tracey Goulding, email@example.com who is organizing the food again this year. Because of the location we are keeping the meal a bit simpler than in previous years, with hamburgers, hot dogs and sausage on a bun and all the fixings. The club is covering the cost of the hamburgers, hot dogs and sausages. There is a $10 per person charge for dinner.
Bring everything you need to set up your station, transceiver, power bars, antenna tuners, antennas and importantly long extension cords. If you are bringing a generator, be sure to make certain it is not emitting excess RFI on any band that we are using.
Please see the 2016 Band Plan below. As always, you are free to try your hand at any band, just organize the time with the band captain. If you would like to work a particular band and your name is not listed, please contact Terry firstname.lastname@example.org to be put on the band list.
If you have any suggestions or changes, please contact Terry email@example.com
