ARRL Field Day 2015 is coming June 27-28, 2015!
Field Day for the North Augusta-Belvedere Radio Club and Aiken County ARES will be held the 4th full weekend in June. It will be in the western parking lot of the student dorms of University of South Carolina, Aiken campus. We have a lot more room to put up antennas and spread out. Dinner will be Low Country Boil. We will operate 5A this year with two dedicated HF SSB stations, a HF CW station, a HF PSK31 station, a 6M SSB station and a GOTA station. We will be using 3 FLEX 6500 SDR radios. In 2014 we made over 1400 contacts.
Please plan on attending and helping out. We will be setting up antennas and such Friday afternoon. Then Saturday AM, finish up the setup and start at 2PM on Saturday and run 24 hours straight. If you are interested, or new to HAM radio, this is a great time to come out and see all the neat, different equipment and modes that HAMS operate with. You can just watch or you can help by starting out doing “logging”. All you have to do is type in a call sign in a laptop setting next to the station operator. For more information, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
