Kick-Off Of 2007 K4LRG - LARG Field Day Committee (Purcellville, VA. February 24, 2007)
Our first organizational meeting on February 24, 2007 was a great success. Many of our key positions and needed resources were identified. We are organized to go 5A again this year. And, if possible we would like the newer amateurs to try their hand at a Get-On-The-Air Station. We are looking for folks to step forward. Please study the ARRL Field Day rules. There are many fine opportunities to work Field Day. See the Organization Chart. Several Station Captains are looking for Co or Deputy Station Captains. Please contact our Field Day Chairman, Jeff Slusher - KE5APC, and volunteer. Everyone is encouraged to operate at one or more of our stations; you need to coordinate your operating times, in advance, with the station captains. The latter will than inform the chairman and your sked will be posted to the Op Schedule.
Please use the Site Guide at the bottom of this and each of the other sections of this report to read about our operation. More sections will be linked as we obtain information. You may wish to review our 2006 operation. If you plan to operate than study the Station Reports and Rate Charts for 2006.
The Emergency K4LRG - LARG Field Day Committee Meeting
(Purcellville, VA. June 7, 2007)
An emergency planning session was held Thursday, June 7, 2007, at Gary Quinn's
house to adjust club plans for Field Day, 22-23-24 June 2007. For those
of you who didn't see the earlier posting, we learned late Wednesday
that we would not be able to use Banshee Reeks Nature Reserve
(through NO fault of our own) this year, and have had to make
alternative plans to hold the event at the Quinn Farm in
Thanks to our host, Gary, NC4S � and further TNX to him and his XYL for allowing the club to use his farm on Field Day!!
The meeting resulted in a good plan for placement of all five
stations plus V/UHF, APRS, GOTA/Non-traditional, and SATCOM in
addition to food services, parking, etc. A sketch
