NCTC Field Day 2018
For all those interested, here is a map and aerial of the location. It’s at North Holiday Park at Benbrook Lake.
Entrance to the park is only $5 per carload to get in.
The menu includes hamburgers, hot dogs and all the fixins. Chips, cookies, water and soft drinks too.
What more could ya ask for? Just bring your own lawn chair.
Plenty of shade from the two trees adjacent to the picnic pavilion. Bathrooms are close by, as well as running water.
I will bring an 857d w/ 20 meter and 2m SSB antenna. I will also bring dual bands for simplex 2m / 70cm contacts and a talk in channel. Bring whatever you’d like, I am sure there will be plenty of help to setup whatever antenna poles and mounts we can come up with.
Plenty of generator power is on hand as well.
I will arrive at the lake early to set up, the earlier the better!
I am not intending for this to be a serious contesting affair, but rather a family affair; a chance for everyone to meet and socialize. An eyeball QSO. A chance to meet and put a smiling face with those voices we have been talking to.
I wish to especially extend an invite to the new hams, as this will be a great time to meet others who are just starting out, and to also meet some of us who have “been around awhile”.
