Winter Field Day

January 30 @ 3:00 pm - January 31 @ 3:00 pm

Winter Field Day is 3pm Saturday January 30th to 3pm Sunday January 31st. I have 4 people so far who wish to participate. It will be at my QTH in the woods. If you search “VA1JON-10”, the APRS marker is my place. 408 Old Coach Road, Salts Springs, NS.

Everyone is invited to operate, stand around the fire drinking coffee, eating s’mores or whatever you want. We will have the station set up for the day and Tony, Clare and I will probably camp out overnight. The caveat is that after parking at my place you have a 400m walk in the snow to get to the station. I don’t have any means of getting people up here unless Kevin has finally fixed the transporter.

Wear warm gear and boots, bring food and drinks. If you want to string up antenna and test an idea or bring your radio out, we have plenty of space and trees. I have about 6 folding chairs so if you have your own, that would help.

We will monitor HR if you need to contact us for directions or to let us know you are enroute. We cannot arrange contact skeds via the repeater as it is against the rules. If you operate here, we can’t contact you later from your home QTH for points.

Don’t be shy if you haven’t been on the air much. No one is going to throw a mic at you and expect you to be able to do everything. Come out and do some logging and watch the highly skilled operators or me do some hammin. Please let me know either way if you will be attending.

Cheers
