Please join us this weekend, June 25-26, at Wassamki Springs Campground, (located at 56 Saco Street, Scarborough, ME) for ARRL Field Day!
We will be operating in the 3A category (club station with 3 full time HF transmitters), plus we’ll also be active on 6 meters, VHF, and satellite throughout the event.
Please follow all campground rules! All visitors must check in at the main gate and park where they are directed to by the attendant. No campfires are allowed, no swimming, and no pets.
FRIDAY – 10:00 AM – Setup for the CW tower/trailer [Contact: Rick K1OT at (207) 939-9333].
SATURDAY – 10:00 AM – Setup for the other HF stations, including tents, antennas, and small items such as the table display.
SATURDAY – 2:00 PM – On-air activities begin.
SUNDAY – 2:00 PM – On-air activities end, followed by breakdown of equipment and site cleanup.
The public is encouraged to attend, and there will also be a Get on the Air (GOTA) station available for anyone who’d like to try out ham radio! Here’s the preliminary schedule for the GOTA station:
Setup: SATURDAY 8:00 AM – 1:00 PM
Operating hours: SATURDAY: 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM & 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Operating hours: SUNDAY: 9:00 AM – 11:30 AM & 12:30 PM – 2:00 PM
TEMPORARY RULE WAVER
Similar to last year’s Field Day, a temporary rule waiver allows participants from any Class to optionally include a single club name with their submitted results. This means that if you’d prefer to operate from home, using your own call sign, and would like to contribute to our club aggregate score, you may do so. Please include the full club name: Wireless Society of Southern Maine with your entry.
