Cuyahoga Falls Amateur Radio Club
Field Day 2011 - June 24-26
Day is an opportunity to broaden your radio horizons with very little
effort. Everyone is welcome - either as an active
participant or just an observer. You do not need to be a club member to
participate. You don't even need a ham license to help.We encourage you
to join us and participate if you can. Youth participation is especially
encouraged whether they have a license or not.
Of course there is a variety of dining experiences and camping if you
wish. Most of all it's an opportunity to get together with your fellow
hams and work towards a common goal.
- Assemble antennas
- Educational activities (this year -- using antenna analyzers such as the MFJ-259B)
- Assembling and erect temporary towers
- Installing wire antennas
- Properly running coax and rotor cables from antennas to stations.
- Set up operating HF and VHF stations in multiple modes (voice, Morse code, digital, etc.)
- Various specialized operations such as satellite communications and alternate power (solar) operations
- Experiment with and test out equipment prior to the official start
- Observe wildlife (it's called Groundhog Hill for a reason)
- Try out new or experimental antennas (such as the Steve, N8LGP, "Cane Pole")
- Operate several stations simultaneously over the 24 hour FIeld Day operating period. We operate SSB, CW and Digital modes.
- When it's all over we tear it all down and carefully repack
it in the storage facility for next year - or any other emergency need
You do not need to be a club member to participate. Everyone is welcome
- either as an active participant or just an observer. We encourage you
to participate if you can. Youth participation is especially encouraged
whether they have a license or not.
