2009 EMA Field Day Directory Now On-line

ARRL Field Day 2009 logoThe 10th Annual Eastern Massachusetts Field Day Directory contains some of the most comprehensive Field Day resource pages of its kind.

According to Bill Ricker, N1VUX, the section Field Day pages offer detailed information on individual field day club operations  as well as new features, like:

“OpenLayers /OpenStreetMaps zoom/pan widgets with a choice of base map. These are open source data (CC-BY-SA) maps. Thanks to OSM volunteers we even have a Mass Topo server linked, a welcome gift since the commercial topo sites are no longer linkable.

See http://fd.ema.arrl.org/field_day/fd_dir.php and http://fd.ema.arrl.org/field_day/SiteDetail.php?site=MiltGr

“For a ‘before’ view compare the static map http://fd.ema.arrl.org/ and TIGER map http://fd.ema.arrl.org/field_day/ClubDetail.php?club=MVARG (Or turn off JavaScript temporarily — the new pages will revert when script is blocked, unlike Google on the ARRL HQ 2nd First Annual Locator.)

“We still have richer data, such as local landmark directions and site and club FD history, and links to multiple map sources and webpages for club and site,” adds Ricker.

“Clubs which are reactivating a previous Class A or F site can confirm to the EMA Directory by simply putting their pin in at the ARRL Locator – conveniently linked from our directory. I’ll pick that up and mark them confirmed. I would appreciate an email from new clubs in Class A or F, clubs with new sites, clubs whose details on their EMA directory need updating, or who are definitely not using the site they had last year.
