    Field Day 2017 - New Remote Tower
    Field Day 2017 – New 60 ft Tower

    Hello Everyone,

    We made a lot of progress filling team leadership positions and with firming up the basics of our 2018 Field Day plans at our kickoff meeting last evening. We are planning a 10A operation at Hudson Memorial School this year. We are still working on filling a few Team Leadership positions (the ones in yellow in the attached slides) but most positions were filled.

    We will be meeting each week on Monday at 7 pm at the Nashua Public Library (see the NARS calendar for details) to continue to firm up our plans and prepare for Field Day 2018.

    We are planning yagi antenna prep party at AB1OC/AB1QB this Friday at 9 am and we are also planning antenna building party here sometime in the near future (possibly Saturday if we cannot launch HAB-3).

    We will be using this forum (the Field Day forum) to share plans and signups as we move forward to please keep a close eye on the goings ons here.

    Thank you to everyone who has stepped up to help with Field Day 2018!

    Hi everyone.  Sorry I missed the steering meeting this week.  I would like to volunteer to be on the transportation team.

    In addition to an open bed pickup, I’ve got a 5×10 enclosed trailer (about 5′ headroom) that has a nice low floor.  I’ve also got an 8×12 enclosed snowmobile trailer (about 6′ headroom) with a ramp.  I’d obviously have to unload the sleds if that second trailer could be useful.   And finally, if a Heavy Duty equipment trailer (16×8) with a flat deck would come in handy… I can get that.

    Being new to the club and this is my first Field Day, I’ll be better off in a support or logistics role than in an operators seat.

    Once I see what cargo needs to be transported… tower sections, built Yagis, etc, Gas Grills, we can get a better idea of trucking needs.  ALso, how soon the site can be prepped, and if they will allow staging of equipment before Friday.

    Thanks very much
