Field Day 2023
Setup June 23 Operations June 24-25
This is the sign up sheet for Field Day volunteers. We need a few more people on Friday to help with the equipment and setup tasks as this work includes some physical labor hauling equipment out of the storage shed, driving stakes into the ground, hoisting antennas onto the mast, turning wrenches, pulling cables, and carefully working with the team to setup two or three large antennas. For those who are experienced with our equipment, they will be giving installation instructions and guidance for where and how the equipment is installed. None of this is extremely hard, but the items are very tall, some of it is heavy, and we need to work together to make sure it's done right. And safe.
If you can commit to a day or a block of hours on a given day, please send an email stating the day and times you will be present. When field day is in operation, we must be present to run the radios and greet guests and visitors who are curious about the operations. Santee shops and restaurants are very close and you are welcome take a break for a few hours. The evening hours will be lightly attended, but the event runs through the night. Stay up as late as you want, but we must have at least two club members stay on the premises through the evening.
Email your signup information to firstname.lastname@example.org
Be sure to include the day, and the hours you will commit to volunteering.
If you cannot commit to a volunteer schedule, please come when you can and lend a hand. Your participation on Saturday is helpful to greet guests and introduce people to Amateur Radio, help hams get on the air, show newbies how to call and respond and enter logs. Please come when you can for as long as you can, make new friends, say hi to old friends, and share a radio weekend with others. Wear your club name tag or any name tag so we can get to know you better.
