Field Day Update:

Despite the best efforts of Mother Nature and Murphy (he makes it to all our events!), Field Day 08 was a success. This year's location turned out to be too noisy electrically, prompting a decision to return in 09 to the grass lot west of the Walmart less than a mile away. We had a real difficult time driving in our grounding rods, which may have added to the static. Lessons learned. Still, club members came out in force to help set up, operate, donate equipments, and tear down.

The sun was bright and warm all weekend with temps in the high 90's, so the travel trailers provided some much needed relief from the heat. The heat didn't deter Pete (K4QHR) from once again manning the grill to whip of some outstanding grub. We had a number of visitors stop by for a quick discription of what each station, CW, Phone, and Digital, was for and watch us make a few contacts. One of Glenn's (KD4ULB) top moments came when he was able to work ARRL Headquarters W1AW on RTTY!

On Sunday evening a crowd gathered at the local Cracker Barrel to talk over the event and to make a special presentation to George (WA4GWB) for all his hard work in planning the event, and to Pete (K4QHR) for all the times he has provided the club with great food. We also got some great local media coverage before and after, with a very well written articles appearing in the Tribune-Georgian and Kings Bay Periscope. As soon as I can got those articles scanned I will provide links here.
