WCF SECTION PRESS RELEASE #21-27
WCF SECTION FIELD DAY IN PERSON CARAVAN RESUMES AND SPECIAL FIELD DAY EDITION OF EAGLE NET.
The 21st Annual ARRL West Central Florida Section Field Day Caravan will take to the roads of the ARRL West Central Florida Section on Saturday June 26, 2021. Mike Douglas W4MDD, Section Manager, and his chauffeur Tim Peters KW4AJ, will be conducting the caravan solo this year, due to the limited number of clubs and groups who registered their Field Day operations with the ARRL Field Day Locator on the ARRL website. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the 2020 edition of the ARRL West Central Florida Section Field Day Caravan was a virtual only event conducted via a Zoom meeting.
The Eagle Net, which meets daily on the NI4CE Repeater System at 2030 hours, will operate an extended session on Saturday June 26, 2021 to handle any NTS radiograms originated from Field Day sites and specifically for any NTS radiograms being sent to our Section Manager Mike Douglas W4MDD or our Section Emergency Coordinator Norman Xanders WX4NEX.
For more information on how to format an NTS Radiogram to the Section Manager or the Section Emergency Coordinator, which includes a sample radiogram, there are instructions and guidance on the ARRL West Central Florida Section Field Day Caravan webpage at http://arrlwcf.org/wcf-special-events/west-central-florida-section-field-day-caravan/
The ARRL West Central Florida Section wishes everyone a safe and successful ARRL Field Day.
