Trojan Park 20203
So the following is a list of what I can think of right now. I’m adding and subtracting all the time. SO… if you can bring something please put your call sign on the empty line that I leave below the item. If you can bring more than 1 of then write a 2 or 4 or ?? beside your call.
This is not meant to be the final list so, please feel free to add an item if you think it might be helpful. Also I would like this to be a family friendly event and to that end I’ve added some items. Obviously that’s your own list.
Ultimately we need as many as 4 – 5 sunshades with 3 being Ham shacks.
You each have your own goals I’m sure. My goal for the group is to make 3 contacts on every band between 80 m to 33 cm. Our only shortage standing in our way is a 6 meter radio and a 1.25 (220Mhz) radio and antenna.
Let’s have fun!

We start transmitting at 11am???? Or is it 10am?
No matter, I am guessing a good 2+ hours to have everything right and tight. It’s most likely going to take me closer to 4 hours as I have a 2 rod endorsement on my fishing license 🙃
C’mon people , you didn’t think I would pass this up did you??
Set up starts any time prior to 8:am. At 8:01am you’re going to have to hussel.
As for where we will set up just inside the park on the left side of the main entrance. You will see a small road on the left with a white gate then a large tree with parking underneath and a porta-potti. The grass covered flat area behind the tree and outhouse is my idea.
If you drive in the park and get to the ponds (one on each side of the road) you’ve gone to far. I will respond to this with long., lat. In a few.
I drive a white Ford F-150 with my call on the plate. Can’t miss it.Go here:
46 degrees, 2 minutes, 11 seconds North by 122 degrees, 53 minutes, 34 seconds West
Happy Field Day & 73,
