Field Day 2017 June 23rd-25th
One of the events of the North Shore Radio Association does every year is the ARRL Field Day at Endicott Park in Danvers, MA
Endicott Park is a 165-acre natural and historic site.
We plan to start setting the park up on Friday, June 23rd afternoon and then again on Saturday morning, June 24th around 9 am., getting on the air by 2 pm. and operating for the full 24 hrs. of the contest.
If anyone is interested in running a station, lending us equipment, or if you have any questions... Please email the Field Day chairperson at fdchair at nsradio dot org We have plenty of space for more stations within the contest rules.
Tent Camp sites are available for all. Since radio operators are always in demand, we welcome all amateurs (not just members) to join us for this event.
Field Day is more than just a contest, its a great outing as well, with camping, and cookouts we are charging a nominal $15.00 fee for Saturdays Dinner to offset the rising cost of Fieldday.
Please RSVP if planning to come so we can plan on the number of mouths to feed. Yes, food supplied! That is Lunch for the setup crews (Both Friday & Saturday), Dinner, Breakfast for the operators, and what's left over for Sunday's lunch.
The Danvers Repeater on 145.470 MHz. - minus offset - PL 136.5 is for talk-ins and a on site Simplex frequency of 147.420 MHz are monitored during the weekend.
We want all to have a great time.
