It’s time to start getting ready for CVARC’s 2019 ARRL Field Day.
There is no better learning experience in ham radio than participating in a Field Day event. Once again we will be using the practice fields at Maple Elementary School, 3501 West Kimber Drive, Thousand Oaks, CA.
Setup will start 1100 PDT on June 21. (Please don’t come any earlier as, according to the Field Day Rules, we can set up no sooner than 1100). Operations will start at 1100 PDT June 22 and end 1100 PDT June 23. Cleanup will commence at 1100 PDT June 23. There will be a BBQ on the afternoon and evening of June 22 (details to follow).
CVARC has reserved the pavilion from 8 AM to 5 PM, so please plan on setting up no earlier than 8 AM. (We may want to use this venue again, so we don’t want to anger the Recreation and Parks Gods.) We’ll have pizza and drinks available around lunchtime.
The next Mini-Field Day & Picnic is scheduled for January 26, beginning at 10:00 am. ARRL’s Winter Field Day begins at 11:00. It’s at the same location as last time, Dos Vientos Community Park, 4801 Borchard Rd., in Newbury Park.
If you’re new to the hobby or the club, this is a great opportunity to check out other people’s gear, ask questions, and get on the air. Hope to see you there!
