Primer on Field Day Participation    Field Day Handbook (WVARA)

Our Field Day site is on the grounds immediately next to the Dry Creek Ranch House. Directions: Go 0.6 miles north of the intersection of Elkhorn Blvd and Dry Creek Road. Enter the 2015 Field Day Site through the main entrance on the east side of Dry Creek Road. Proceed on the driveway past the Ranch House and turn right behind the barn to the parking area. To avoid damage to the new irrigation system, DO NOT DRIVE DIRECTLY ACROSS THE FIELD TO THE FIELD DAY SITE. Talk-in on our N6NA 145.25 MHz repeater.

SET UP: We will set up at 7:00 am sharp on Saturday June 27th. Members should wear their ID badge.  Check in with Field Day Captain Andy W6AWS for task assignments.  If you are bringing a canopy see Andy W6AWS or Jason KF6QXX before you set up.  We have a set up plan based on layout of antennas.  Bring the items you have committed.  Label personal equipment with your call sign.

Potluck: The club will provide Hot dogs and Hamburgers as well as various soft drinks and water. I want to remind everyone this is a park and they do not allow alcohol onsite. As before, we ask the following from members to bring for the potluck: Call sign suffixes starting in A-M - Bring a cold salad, potato salad, baked beans or similar. N-Z - Bring a dessert, cookies, brownies, pie, etc.  BRING A COOLER for your cold items.  We will have a BBQ pit there. If anyone would like to assist in the grilling duties let me know.
