Haven't made any plans but looks like I might be in for something. Whatcha got?

Kicking around a few ideas, but you've seen how agile my FD setup is. I could set up anywhere wit a few moments notice. Whatca planning on doin'?

I could make plans. I don't have any right now.
I have a little Kenwood TS-50 that travels well.

Going to scout a few locations this weekend. Thinking Lamartine or Mill Creek. Any input would be appreciated.

Sorry not to have added much, been busy dealing with inspection resolutions this weekend and week. Anything look interesting?

1) Tune your HT to a local repeater and ask where the nearest Field day site with a GOTA (get on the air) station is and what the site's "talk-in freq" is.

2) Tune to the talk-in freq in your HT and get directions to the site.

3) Go to the site and ask the site mgr what their GOTA procedure is (you'll usu be assigned a "Coach" and time slot).

4) Get on a REAL radio and start making contacts.

*WARNING* this activity is highly addictive. You'll soon be spending a lot of $$ at HRO.

Didn't get up around Empire. Everything that i checked out down south of here is or will be in the path of the Springer fire.

Are you going to get a chance to get out this weekend?

TS-50 is a great rig. Are you planning on coming out? If so, just pack your radio, a cooler and a tent and as soon as Dave chimes in we can pick a spot and head out.
