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.
