Field Day 2016


Yes, Fellow ham operators, It’s that time of the year again to be part of the greatest event in amateur radio, the one and only FIELD DAY. I will again be offering the use of our estate of Fred & Kathy Bernquist, AE2DX previous call N2DCP. The sites will be mowed we will again offer the use of our 5th wheel RV for your operating comfort or rest periods. The in ground pool water is a comfortable 86 degrees. There are many sites to choose from as most are near many trees for your antenna configurations. This years also there are more cleared out areas for you to set up in as we had the brush and limbs trimmed during this past year to make more room.

This year's dining feast will include hot dogs and hamburgers cooked on the grill and supplied by your hosts and any and all vittles you wish to bring to share with the others for your dining pleasure. Don’t forget to bring your swim suits and towels, any snacks and drinks you plan to enjoy during this extravaganza event. Along with the meat, we will also supply the rolls both for Hot dogs and hamburgers.

As usual, after the event the newly renovated shooting range will be open for the target and skeet shooting practice if you so desire. Bring lots of ammo as the shortage going on of ammo I need all the casings I can collect to have reloaded again.

If you're planning on coming during the event please RSVP so that I know how much meat to purchase.

This years event will be held on June 25th and 26th 2016. Set up will begin when you arrive try to be here early to allow time to set up for the 2PM start.

The location is 4386 E. Posselt Drive, Hernando, Fl 34442 (note the road is ok for travel but lots of pot holes drive slow). Our SCARS welcome sign will be posted on the street pointing your way to the sites.

Please forward this information to any others anyone you think might be interested such as CB’ers also who might be interested in attending this once a year event. Looking forward to another great turnout.
