Preparations for another SLQS Winter Field Day are moving right along. As I look outside at the thermometer… oh, who are we kidding? As I look at the weather app on my phone (grin) I see it’s a bracing 15º, with “Real Feel” of 1º. All I can say is that I hope the weather is warmer two weeks from today!
When does this happen? Where will we be?
Winter Field Day is a 24-hour event happening this year from 1pm Saturday January 27 to 1pm Sunday January 28. We will only be operating on Saturday.
Once again we’ll be setting up our operating position at Cochran Shelter of Babler Memorial State Park. Click that link to get a Google Maps page showing our location.
What we’ll be doing
First of all, we’ll be working to stay warm! The shelter has a fireplace and we’ll be making good use of it.
But it’s all about playing radio! We’ll have three operating positions set up, and we’ll be contacting other WFD participants across North America and around the world.
We will be using one of the special 1×1 call signs for this event. Listen for N0A — that will be one of us!
We’re happy to have visitors, so feel free to stop by.
