Field Day Map


Here’s how to get to the Field Day site. Take Mitchell St. to Kalamazoo (4 way stop).Take Kalamazoo south past the 4 way stop at Jennings. Continue straight and Kalamazoo will make a 90 degree turn to the left and become Atkins Road. As you head out of town, take the first road to the right (McDougal Rd.). After the turn, take the next road to the left (Greenwood Rd). Follow Greenwood. It will make a 90 degree turn to the right. At the next intersection, Greenwood turns to the left. You need to continue straight (Brubaker). Take Brubaker to Krause Rd. Turn right on Krause. Follow Krause through the woods and up the hill. As you come out of the trees you will pass a cement building on your right. The entrance to the Field Day site is on the left just before the road enters the woods again. There will be signs along the way and we should be monitoring the W8GQN repeater if you need assistance. There will be burgers, hot dogs, and refreshments and plenty of room to run around, so feel free to bring the family. Dogs are welcome too but please keep them on a leash.
