07:54 Topic Things to do on Field Day.

Perhaps you'd rather not spend Field Day sitting outside operating a radio. What else can you do?

Field Day is a great opportunity to visit many different amateur radio clubs in a short time. The ARRL web site has a Field Day Station Locator page that
shows the Field Day stations operating near you. There is also a searchable list of ARRL-affiliated radio clubs to help you locate clubs in your area.
By visiting the club's Field Day activities, you should be able to quickly determine how friendly and open that club will be.

Field Day is also an opportunity to accumulate contacts toward awards, like Worked All States or DXCC.

22:42   Richard reminisces about his Field Day operations.

If you do attend a Field Day, send an email about your experiences.
