PART of Westford Meeting Online, June 16, 2020

PART of Westford logoGeorge Allison, K1IG, writes on the PART of Westford mailing list:

Our next club meeting will be conducted via Webex video conference starting at 7:30 PM on Tuesday, June 16.  As usual, you can check in after 7:00 PM to test your equipment. See below for the login information.

The topic of this meeting is Field Day. I hope you’re all planning on making at least a few contacts from your home station or a portable setup and adding to the PART score. This year’s Field Day could have more stations on the air than ever before, so it’s your opportunity to make a LOT of contacts!

At this meeting we’ll go over:

  • How you can participate from home
  • Types of stations you can set up and the Field Day exchange for each
  • How to make contacts and log them. Technicians are part of this event too; we’ll set up special times for Techs (and others) to make contacts on VHF/UHF
  • How to get bonus points
  • How to submit an entry — we’ll walk you through the entry form and show you how to properly enter data to give yourself and the club the most points.

You can get a head start by reading the Field Day rules here.  If you have questions, you can ask them at the meeting.  After the meeting I’ll send out a summary of important information.

At the end of my presentation, I’ll invite you to tell the club what you plan to do for Field Day.
