Rules,.... http://www.arrl.org/files/file/Field-Day/2012/2012-FD-Rules.pdf VHF Operation,... http://www.arrl.org/files/file/Field-Day/2012/2012-FD-VHF-Tips.pdf Frequencies we will be on.. 28.400 -10 meters 3.950 - 80 meters 14.265 - 20 meters 7.220 - 40 meters 21.350 - 15 meters FM For Field Day operating, FM is probably the easiest VHF mode to implement. You’ll have little trouble finding FM rigs to use; even a hand-held transceiver can make a fine Field Day rig. FM doesn’t have the range of CW or SSB, but it is the most popular communications mode on the VHF and UHF bands. You’ll find the greatest amount of FM simplex activity on the 2-meter band, although 6 meter FM may be worth a try as well. Remember that Field Day rules prohibit the use of repeaters. This means you’ll have to hunt for contacts on the recognized simplex frequencies. QSL INFO All QSL cards should be sent to: N4JTQ Rick Sawaya Sr. W4W Field Day Event 2005 Spence Mountain Loop Sevierville , TN 37876 You must send a SASE # 10 envelope with your QSL card, if no SASE you will not receive a QSL card back !! Donations are welcome to the club.. Again anyone is welcome to come and join us, bring your own equipment to operate. Also if you wish to just stop by and say hello that would be great, we will have some items to give out during this event !! Thanks http://www.arrl.org/files/file/Field-Day/2012/2012-FD-LOG.pdf www.arrl.org
