A new Field Day effort conducted by the Ipswich Emergency Management Agency will debut in Ipswich this weekend, according to EMA Director Jon Hubbard, W1HUB.
The group is off to a great start in the public relations department: they secured an official proclamation in conjunction with Field Day from the Town’s Board of Selectmen at a June 11 meeting. The presentation can be viewed at http://ipswichma.granicus.com/MediaPlayer.php?view_id=2&clip_id=244.
“This year will be [our] first attempt at field day operating as W1IEM. We will be operating on Saturday, June 23 from 2-6PM and maybe a little longer depending on interest levels.”
Hubbard invites all interested parties to visit their Field Day operation. Map and directions can be found on the Eastern MA Field Day page at http://ema.arrl.org/field_day/SiteDetail.php?site=IEM.
