Note the change of location – now Public Safety Center (EOC) and home
Out of concern over the currently forecast high temperatures, the decision has been made to move this years WCARES Field Day back to the Public Safety Center for SSB and CW and at-home (for digital.)
Note that set-up will not happen until 8 AM on Saturday morning.
If you did not sign up because of weather conditions now is a good time to sign up for air conditioned spaces!
WCARES Field Day information can be found here.
To sign up and participate with WCARES click here.
There are still lots of openings for Phone, Digital and CW Operators.
Look for more details to follow here on the website, WCARES Notes and the Monday night net.
If you have other questions please contact Paul Tampien KM4PT (KM4PT@arrl.net) .
