By w0kf - Date: 2009-06-24 22:53:39

Here is a reminder that this upcoming weekend, June 27th & 28th is the ARRL Field Day weekend. And the Twin Cities Repeater Club is going to be active once again this year from the Murphy-Hanrehan park in Savage, MN. The actual event runs from 1PM Saturday the 27th to 1PM Sunday the 28th. We will be operating throughout the night for the full 24 hour period. Our effort will comprise two full time HF stations one primarily voice and one full time CW. We will also have a Get On The Air (GOTA) station for those newly licensed operators and those returning to ham radio activity. Even if you don't have license privileges for HF you can operate under our club call, W0BU, and get a taste of HF operating with the guidance of one of our control operators. We will also have a full time VHF/UHF station operating voice and CW on the bands above 30Mhz and possibly even a satellite as well. Field Day is a great opportunity to experience some of the bands and modes you have always wanted to check out! We will be needing help for setup starting sometime after 1PM Friday the 26th. At around 5PM on Friday we will be erecting several antennas and towers and we can use all the help we can get. Also after 1PM on Sunday we will again need help with tear down and dismantling all the stations also. As for the social aspects of Field Day we will be having a pot luck dinner at 6PM on Saturday evening. You are encouraged to bring a dish to share and by all means bring along the family! Finally we will hold a brief TCRC Membership meeting at 7:00PM on Saturday to keep everyone up to speed with what is going on with the club. If you need help locating our site you can go to Type in the call W0BU and you will find a Google map of our location. Talk in can be found on the 147.21 repeater. Finally if you have any other questions or comments I will welcome them
at 73 & Enjoy Field Day! Phil, KB0NES TCRC Vice-president
