We will setup around 9:00 AM on Saturday. Biscuits and gravy will be provided for the setup crew. We will have our large club trailer there with emergency power and plenty of places to operate. If you would like to bring a radio, antenna, power supply and laptop, please do so. We'll be using N3FJP Field Day Contest Log software. Please have that installed BEFORE you arrive at our Field Day location. No need to purchase it if you have not done so. We'll use the club license on Field Day.

We will be posting pictures each year. If you have any from past Field Day events, please email them to Bobby Duncan via QRZ.

About W5PAA

The Aeronautical Center Amateur Radio Club, Inc.'s mission is to offer its members a means of demonstrating and sharing their knowledge, skills, and experiences in amateur radio with others and provide emergency communications services to the community. This is accomplished through support of local and national amateur radio events and drills, conducting licensing workshops and training in emergency communications procedures. Some of these include the Rush Springs Annual Watermelon Festival, the OKC Memorial Marathon and Amateur Radio support during Preparedness Drills and Exercises conducted by local first-responder agencies.
