    Is there planning for Field Day 2018?

    After the interference between 6M and 10/15/20 last year, I built two filters 10 meter low pass and 6 meter high pass from the Oak Ridge ARC article.  That should solve the problem if we keep using the IC-7300.

    Activity with WSJT-X and the FT8 mode should be significant, so I’ve been practicing.

    Hi Jeff,

    Yes, we’ve been planning for Field Day for a while and have selected a site. We have a weekly webex going on Thursday evenings to cover several projects including Field Day, NEAR-Fest, and HAB-3. I’ll add you to that call.

    The new DXpedition mode should make FT8 really active for Field Day this year. In addition to running it on the 6 station, we are planning to have 3 HF digital stations in our setup this year (40m, 20m, 15m/10m/80m). The HF stations will likely all be SDR based using Flex radios.
