2019 FIELD DAY

MARC 2019 FD was once again held at the Bridle and Saddle Club pavilion, located in the Maury County Park. FD was on the weekend of June 22nd and 23rd. Several people arrived at the site around 8:00 AM on Saturday putting up antennas and setting up stations. On air operations began at 1:00 PM and lasted until early Sunday morning.

On Saturday evening, June 22nd, operations were shut down for awhile around 6:00 PM for supper and social gathering. This year's meal was a general picnic theme, with everyone bringing food and drinks that was enjoyed by all. After the meal and short meeting, everyone socialized or got back on the air for more contacts.

This year the club had a digital station, Bob(K4HRK), stations operating code or CW, Bill (K4BX) & Jerry (N4EO). There were also phone stations, Andrew (N4MCC) & Paul (WB0CJB) with one of the phone stations for those who were new to Field Day, newly licensed, or visiting with no license and interested in HAM radio so they could get on the air.
