Once again it is time for the annual Winter Field Day event.
This year the event will be held on January 30 & 31, 2021.
The Woodchucks will be hosting the event at the Cement Tent, Larry(N8OWS) and Chuck(K8CVM) will be coordinating the event.
Due to the current health issues, We will be keeping the number of people at the Tent to a minimum number at any given time.
Please contact Larry or Chuck with your requested time slot.
The temp outdoors is 30 degrees, but inside the tent we are at 80 degrees.......
We will be operating as a HOME Station.
Home: Operation from inside a home or inside another structure attached to a home that could or would be the usual location of an Amateur station (garage, sunroom, etc), generally using a previously erected antenna system.
A “Home” entrant may still be eligible to claim the “alternate power” bonus if not using commercial power. Use of any pre-existing (on site) or permanently installed antenna system or station components renders your station a “Home” station.
Modifications to the rules will follow the ARRL Field Day rules.
Covid 19 Pandemic scoring changes for Clubs/Groups:
These changes apply ONLY to groups who, due to the Pandemic, won’t/cannot be congregating to compete this year.
If your group wishes, you may have a “group/club” score tallied by having individual members fill in the “CLUB:” line in their Cabrillo log file (above).
Individual members would send in a log under their own callsign (operating under their own privileges) with the name or callsign of the group noted on the “CLUB:” line.
If a simple callsign is used in the “club” line, it cannot be one used in the contest or on another member’s entry log (it will confuse the scoring software).
If your group uses a club name, be sure to advise everyone in your group to use the exact same unique name. Choose wisely Grasshopper!
There are dozens of clubs with the same abbreviation (as in LARC, PARC, etc), but it is unlikely there is more than one Livonia ARC, or Lincoln ARC.
Please use the Club Name “Woodchuck ARC”.
Club scores will be the aggregate of the individual members’ scores, regardless of how they operated ad will be posted as distinct “Club/Group” scores once tallied.
Your individual members’ logs and scores will be tallied and posted as well (each under their own call), the same as any other entrant.
It might be a good idea to have someone in your club/group collect members’ logs and check them to ensure the logs are correct before sending them in.
It’ll save us time and you aggravation. “Club/Group” scores will likely be the last to be posted as we cannot be sure all the individual logs are in until the actual log deadline.
If Members are interested, we will run full 24 hours and overnight shifts are available.
A few Members have offered to bring their personal Radios, this is a good time to see how different radios operate and preform.
As a reminder the Cement Tent is heated and has a Keurig Coffer maker, your welcome to bring your favorite flavor of beverage and food.
Those members wishing to participate at the Tent should contact Larry or Chuck to reserve a time.
We will finalize the event at the Club Business meeting on the 29th. (more info on this will be sent this week)
A few hardy Woodchuck's were in the Burrow from 2pm until @10pm on Saturday.
