Every year, radio amateurs in the US get the gear out of doors on Field Day.  The goal is to set up radio gear and antennas in not so ideal situations.  It is meant to demonstrate what is possible in case of an emergency.  Although, it is not a contest, it is treated by many as one.  This year, we will be operating as a 2A Class Station again running two transmitters, a Get On The Air (GOTA) Station as well as a separate VHF station.   Setup time begins at 8:00 AM Saturday.    Operations run for 24 hours commencing at 2 PM local time on Saturday - June 22 and ending 2 PM local time on Sunday - June 23.   For those wanting to learn how to operate on SSB, there will be a class on 6/22 at 12:30 PM.   There will be a family dinner in the pavilion at 6:30 PM on Saturday.  Contact Dave Ivey KE4EA, as he is the 2019  Field Day Coordinator - Cell # 864-380-5701
