2022 Field Day

ARRL_FD22Field Day is set for Saltwaters Shooting Range where we will operate from the old press box for the race track that was once there. The address is 900 Big Oak Rd., St Augustine, FL 32095. (MAP) It is just west of the St Augustine Airport. The range will be open (it is public) so we will hear shots but the press box is well insulated and we should not suffer from the noise. The best thing is that it is AIR CONDITIONED! We will have a cool place to operate. This is private property of course so please be respectful (as you always are) of the facility which the owner has been so gracious as to allow us to use it. Field Day operations begin at 2 pm and if there are operators available, we will operate into the night. We will tear down Sunday depending on when interest in operating wanes.

At this point, we may not have a Saturday meal or if so it will be take out from somewhere. This is due to health issues with multiple key people. We must also caution everyone that a lot of people have recently dealt with COVID. None have been critical, but all would have rather not had it and its lingering effects. Overall we have several club members either out due to the health issues or out of town with family. That said, we have a number of people who have confirmed that they will be there and be setting up to operate. We are looking forward to a great event.

Florida State Parks On the Air – Reminder

Just a reminder, this weekend is Florida State Parks on the Air. The Saint Augustine Amateur Radio Society will be activating Favor-Dykes state park for this event. We will definitely be operating on Saturday and the event officially goes from 10 am to 6 pm. There are no night time operations for the event. We have reserved the picnic pavilion for both Saturday and Sunday. Our participation will depend on interest. Allen, W4YO plans to arrive at the park at about 8:30 and will have the club station to set up. The weather should be very nice. It has been reported it is wise to use some bug spray as it is a pine woods with the typical pests. Bob N2PE is doing lunch for us. Please complete his survey.

Hope to see you there. (MAP)
