Members of the Kinston Amateur Radio Society (KARS) in conjunction with the Wayne County Amateur Radio Association (WCARA) and the Samson County Amateur Radio Service (SCARS) will be participating jointly in the national Amateur Radio Field Day exercise on the 26th and 27th of June.  Tri-Club Operations will commence at 2pm on the 26th and cease at 2pm on the 27th.  The Field Day site is located in the wooded area across form 2104 Salem Church Road, Goldsboro NC 27530, just south of Lane Tree Golf Course.

What is Field Day you ask, check out the following Link http://www.arrl.org/field-day.

Set up for Field Day will start Friday afternoon, 3 pm and lasts for a couple of hours.  We will return to the site Saturday morning and complete the setup.  I you have time come out and help set up.

Operations will start at 2 pm Saturday until 2 pm Sunday.  All three clubs need operators and loggers.  If you have never operated Field Day now is the time rectify that.

We will have a GOTA (Get On The Air) for new Hams as well as unlicensed individuals.  You will receive instruction on how to operate an HF radio and make contacts.  You then can turn around and help out with the operational stations.

We will be operating the following stations:

GOTA – 10 through 40 Meters SSB

15 Meters SSB

20 Meters SSB

40 Meters SSB

80 Meters SSB

At 6 pm on Saturday we will be having our Field Day evening meal.  Hamburgers and Hot Dogs, Potato Salad, Baked Beans, and Chips.  There will be soda and water available.

So, mark you calendar and come on out and help us with our Field Day operation.  Again, we need operators and loggers…. come out and help.
