2018 FIELD DAY PLANS

This year’s FD was again held at the Bridle and Saddle Club pavilion, located in the Maury County Park. FD was the weekend of June 23rd and 24th and set up started Sat morning at 8 AM. The official start was 1 PM and ran until Sunday morning. This year there were few changes. There was 2 groups on the air simultaneously. The MARC and the D.R.A.T.S. (Duck River Amateur Transmitting Society). The DRATS CW QRP ran as a separate entry and call sign. The remaining stations, were operated as Maury ARC using the call W4GGM. All stations again ran under battery and solar power. Several people commented about how nice it was not having the generator noise. On Saturday evening June 23rd the operation was shut down at 6 PM for dinner, a short meeting, and fellowship. This year the dinner was Mexican related, NON SPICY OR "LOW HEAT". After dinner we had a short meeting and then everyone socialize. For those who wanted to get back on the air the stations were available. They operated throughout the night and up to Sunday morning. If you have never been to or have never participated in FD, I sure hope you got to be there over the weekend !
