Field Day 2015 was a success for the club. Many contacts were made despite conditions and it was good having several operators throughout the 24 hour operating period. Weather certainly wasn’t fantastic with heavy rain and windy conditions but the weather held during setup and breakdown which allowed for operation throughout the night. Modes worked ranged from RTTY to SSB and CW. We had several visitors throughout the day including citizens from the Pawtucket, RI area and Emergency Coordinators from the City of Pawtucket. It was certainly a fun filled and exciting weekend.
The club will be taking a trip, in late August, to Spar Island, a small sandbar out in Mount Hope Bay. The club will be taking a couple of boats owned by club members Steve (N1IBC) and Doug (N2RDF) down to the island for a 24 hour operating session down on the sandbar. The club will be operating with a home made vertical antenna on fiber glass masts. This is all in hopes that the weather will hold! Updates on date finalization to come.
