  • The plan is to have the trailer set up with 4 workstations and the mini-split (that means air conditioning people!).
  • The callsign we will be using is a 1x1 - W4F
  • The location is Little Tallapoosa Park Equestrian Camping area off Hwy 113, Carrollton, GA
  • If we receive permission, the plan is to set up the trailer at the campsite on Friday afternoon/evening, get antennas up, and laptops networked.  Notifications will go out via email and the nets as we will need all the assistance we can get.
  • Arrival time on Saturday morning will be based on the happenings of Friday evening.
  • The actual field day schedule is currently:
    • Saturday 12:00 noon - Hot dog lunch.  Sign up sheet to be posted and link will be sent.  Items needed include anything that goes with a hot dog lunch.  Buns, chips, cheese, chili, assorted drinks, and of course dessert.
    • Saturday 1:00 p.m. there will be a walking Fox Hunt in the park.  I plan for this to be no joke, so bring your best game!
    • Saturday 2:00 p.m. - Field Day contacts begin.
    • Saturday 3:00 p.m. - WX4BK will be giving a demonstration on the use of Winlink over HF.  While we had a workshop this past spring on winlink, there were many who still wonder about its uses and just basically how it works.  
    • Saturday evening - Chip in for wings/pizza/etc....
    • Sunday morning - 8:00 a.m. - Cheese Eggs and Bacon (maybe some coffee?)
    • Sunday takedown - weather permitting begin tear-down at 1 p.m..  All operating ceases at 2:00 p.m..
  • Remember - unlicensed people can operate under the guidance of a control operator.  There will also be a GOTA (Get on the Air) station manned by a coach for anyone interested in the hobby, newly licensed hams, or inactive hams.
Location Little Tallapoosa Park, Carrollton, GA
