Additional Information:

Attention all ARCECS members,
Field Day is a little more than a week away. This is an event our club has participated in for almost 50 years. It is the largest, most important project our club is involved with on a yearly basis. We need to know your availability for this year's event.
Please review the following schedule and email me directly with your availability. You may respond to I will tabulate the results and follow up with Larry so we have a clear picture as to where we stand. Please reply no later than Wednesday June 25th. Again, this is a very important survey to insure proper planning.
Friday June 27th 3:00 PM at the home of Steve Friedman to load the van.
Saturday 9 AM arrival at the Field Day site to unload the equipment and set up Field Day operations.
Saturday 2:00 PM - 12:00 Midnight for afternoon and evening hours of on-air operations.
Sunday 12:00 AM - 8:00 AM for overnight on-air operations (our most critical time slot).
Sunday 8:00 AM through Field Day site departure around 3:30 PM. This is a critical time period during which we need all hands to break down Field Day operation and load the van for a timely departure.
Sunday 4:30 PM at the home of Steve Friedman to unload the van and return the equipment to our storage facility (the very graciously garage space donated to us by Steve). This is extremely important and an area where we usually lack sufficient manpower. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
So, please review and reply as soon as possible.
Thank you,
Stu Haimes N2AUK
Field Day Chairman
