Field Day 2013
For nearly 44 years, Field Day has been my own personal favorite ham radio operating event. There is always an opportunity to try out different radios, help with antennas, contribute to a group score, visit and share stories with other hams and, did I say: experience all kinds of interesting food?
This year, the Plano Amateur Radio Klub and the Lake Area Amateur Radio Klub have joined forces to host what we believe will be one of the best Field Day events we have ever seen in North Texas. Thanks in large part to Dan Howard (KE5CIR, President of LAARK), we have secured an executive conference facility right off Plano Parkway about a mile south of 121. Aside from luxurious accommodations, a gourmet kitchen, a couple of acres of land with lots of trees, the center has AIR CONDITIONING!! Whoo Hooo!!
Over the next couple of weeks, I will be recruiting Team Leaders to form committees around radios, antennas, power, food, publicity, power, computers/software, etc. These team leaders and committee members will comprised of members from both PARK and LAARK.
Here is a link to the web site for the Ranch House where we will be operating. Get it on your calendar for the weekend of June 22/23 and get involved. We've got A/C this year!
