Field Day

doverhillField Day is one of the best attended club events held annually. Club members have a good time making eyeball QSO’s and experimenting with antennas. This national event is always held the 4th weekend in June. For the past several years, the club has operated from the top of Dover Hill using the club call WØIN. If you want to help set up, be there early Saturday morning. Come later in the day or overnight to operate. Look on the top of the hill for the club banner, tents, and antennas draped everywhere. There is plenty of parking, however, you may want to bring your own chairs and sleeping bag if you intend to stay overnight. There is no pavillion, but we will have a large tent in place.
