Burn up those radio waves Saturday, June 23rd and Sunday, June 24th with your TCRC club members at Neill Park on the crossroads of Burnsville Parkway and Upton Avenue in Burnsville. The TCRC is setting up four stations: CW, sideband, UHF/VHF and the G.O.T.A. station all around the picnic shelter just off of Upton Avenue. Bring your family and friends and a dish to share for the picnic and meeting at the Neill Park shelter on Saturday, June 23rd. We’ll fire up the big grill around 5:00 p.m.; the burgers, brats and soft drinks will be provided by the TCRC. Several of you may recall operating Field Day stations at this same park years ago; rekindle your relationships with your friends and fellow club members around the radio on this first weekend of summer! We’ll see you there!

Come Out To Field Day
Posted by w0kf on: Wednesday 24 June @ 22:53:39
 
FieldDay2014 Here is a reminder that this upcoming weekend, June 27th & 28th is the ARRL
Field Day weekend. And the Twin Cities Repeater Club is going to be active
once again this year from the Murphy-Hanrehan park in Savage, MN.

The actual event runs from 1PM Saturday the 27th to 1PM Sunday the 28th. We
will be operating throughout the night for the full 24 hour period. Our
effort will comprise two full time HF stations one primarily voice and one
full time CW. We will also have a Get On The Air (GOTA) station for those
newly licensed operators and those returning to ham radio activity. Even if
you don't have license privileges for HF you can operate under our club
call, W0BU, and get a taste of HF operating with the guidance of one of our
control operators. We will also have a full time VHF/UHF station operating
voice and CW on the bands above 30Mhz and possibly even a satellite as
well. Field Day is a great opportunity to experience some of the bands and
modes you have always wanted to check out!

We will be needing help for setup starting sometime after 1PM Friday the
26th. At around 5PM on Friday we will be erecting several antennas and
towers and we can use all the help we can get. Also after 1PM on Sunday we
will again need help with tear down and dismantling all the stations also.

As for the social aspects of Field Day we will be having a pot luck dinner
at 6PM on Saturday evening. You are encouraged to bring a dish to share and
by all means bring along the family!

Finally we will hold a brief TCRC Membership meeting at 7:00PM on Saturday
to keep everyone up to speed with what is going on with the club.

If you need help locating our site you can go to
http://www.arrl.org/contests/announcements/fd/locator.php Type in the call
W0BU and you will find a Google map of our location. Talk in can be found
on the 147.21 repeater.

Finally if you have any other questions or comments I will welcome them
at kb0nes@tcrc.org


73 & Enjoy Field Day!

Phil, KB0NES
TCRC Vice-president
