Subject: [snovarc] Field Day survey at Big Rock sports field

 

Hello all:

 

Anyone that is interested, Tuesday, April 9th, 6:00 PM, we will do a survey of the Big Rock Sport Fields to get some ideas of how to do Field Day there. After we do our survey, I thought those interested could gather at Red Pepper Pizza in Duvall, 15720 Main Street NE, to talk about our ideas and enjoy one another's company. To save the club some money, we will pay for our own food.

 

See you there.

At last night's meeting, our president, Tom, WA7TBP gave us a very interesting and practical lesson in our county's system for laying out and identifying parcels of land. He provided a nifty handout on the subject with some interesting background. We also enjoyed a display of racks for portable operations. There is always something new and interesting at SnoVARC meetings.

Re: Field Day June 21-23,

If this is the way the club wants to go for more exposure then that Is great. Location is important. The following should be considered…

 

 

Will there be local power available? If not we will need generator(s) and or batteries

Room to spread out with different antennas,

Will there be RF noise (like Big Rock)

What about tents for shade or rain

Tables and chairs

 

Just starting a list for review.

 

Thanks,

 

Rowland

For what it's worth for discussion.

 

I  attended two field day sites last year.  The first was at Stanwood the Stanwood Camano ARC field day held at the fairgrounds.  The second was the Snohomish County ARC held  at a small park on the water south part of Everett.

 

The field day in Everett was cramped for space but  very visible.  Well funded with portable towers and a massive antenna switching system but a safety concern with wires everywhere..  All the operations were in one large tent with at least 6 operating stations going at one time including GOTA (confusion ++).  I would not recommend this field day implementation if you want to invite guests.  They by far had the best technology and the largest budget I have ever seen.

 

I was very impressed with the Stanwood site.  They had five or six tents with one operating station per tent.  They had one small open tent set up just to welcome visitors and guests and steer them towards the GOTA tent or one of the other tents one of which was dedicated to digital.  Another tent was set up for food with an awning and tables.  This implementation was much better for conversation especially with guests and those wanting to learn about ham radio.  The GOTA test was always busy and had separate stations for HF and VHF/UHF.

 

SNOVARC is growing to the point where I think they could in the future support a more spread out field day .  There must be some large fields along the main roads that could accommodate what I observed at Stanwood.  As an example it could be like the field on the west side of the Duvall bridge on the Woodinville Duvall highway.  I think there is even power there.  Seems to me that is where the Duvall church held Summer Bible School.  I think the guy from CDK Construction may be the owner.  Visible, large open space that improves safety and allows antenna separation, good parking. etc.. 

 

And one last thing from Stanwood,  Instead of a Genie Lift see if the fire Department will loan their ladder truck to use as a tower for field day!!!  That was one impressive tower.

 

Best Wishes to all SNOVARC Members,

Well now for my two cents worth.

Many changes of use are happening at the farm and although we could get the space once again this year this might not be the normal in the future. We as a club have had the benefit as a small club having a great place for Field Day. Thant being said we are getting recognized region wide with a great repeater and well maintained system.

As we grow we should be more accessible so I agree with moving the site to a more pubic location. This after all is not a CDCCC event but armature radio event unlike Duvall days. Those into radio will make the tip to a site not so obscure from the public and easy access.

Restrictions are a minor issue as we have had gatherings in the past to show antennas and radios and good learning with no issues. Sure if we also would put out the word over the radio many more would show than previous years. As for safety issues this is no different than any other site and should be covered by the ARRL insurance for radio related activity.

Individuals that play radio will come if the message is out and we can and will learn much from each other.

Two cents,

Last year I had just gotten my Tech and General licenses and I wanted to attend some local Field Day events to get exposure to local clubs.  Both Snovarc and IARC were options.  I did end up going to both events.  However, the Issaquah event was much easier access.  The farm gate is somewhat difficult to find, and it didn't help that the gate code was wrong on the Snovarc web site.  The farm is also somewhat more intimidating (locked gate) and wasn't "inviting" when you had never attended any ham event ever, and had never had any exposure to the club at all.  I would bet that I was probably the only member of the general public without prior exposure who made it to the event.

If all you want is an event for the club members then the farm is fine.  However, my general impression of the Field Day "theme" is that it is supposed to be an outreach to the public.

That said, I know that the IARC group is struggling to find a good spot this year as well so I have no idea where they will end up this year.  It might actually be nice to find a location that multiple clubs could use (say IARC, Snovarc, and Redmond).  Of course I know nothing about inter-club politics, so....

Re: Field Day June 21-23

This conversation has taken place every year on if we need to be more accessible to the public. So far the general opinion has been not during field but maybe on another date in the summer.

 

I believe being at the ball park work create a lot of restrictions including limiter space to put up antennas, safety issues with the public, limited parking, little league will be going on then I believe so that could be an issue. I personally believe the Farm is a wonderful spot.  No we are not going to see many visitors, but I guess you have to ask yourself what is Field Day for.

 

Last year when I toured the other FD sites in the region most of them were located where the general public would have difficulty accessing. Did not seem important to those other groups.

 

This is just my two cents worth.  If we really want some exposure to the public then having an active ham radio booth either with the CDCCC booth or during Duvall Days would be better exposure. 

 

Thanks,

 

Rowland

Well I opened this can of worms so I should respond.

 

I suggested a more visible/accessible location for Field Day to draw in more community folks, for instance the Big Rock Ball Fields.  Several folks stopped by last summer when we were there.  However, the park is not open to overnight camping.  So I was tasked with asking the City.  I did and they quickly said yes.  We didn't vote to make the change.  I suppose we should have a discussion at the next meeting.

Hi all,

 

At the March meeting I volunteered to ask the City for permission to have Field Day at the Big Rock Ball Fields.  Today they granted that permission.

 

We have permission to have 2 campers there overnight, Friday after set up and Saturday.  We will be in the area near Big Rock Road, and will try to do most of our work in the grassy area -where we met during the summer.  We will have to be creative about parking in the afternoon on Saturday as there will be a lot of Little League families coming in for games.  She will supply us with a key and we will lock the gate at night.

 

If we end up with more than 2 campers who want to be there, I'll need to get back to them for permission.  More to discuss at the April meeting.

Some say NOAA 15 is a mess and lost so I gave it a go tonight. Not nice like NOAA 18 or 19 but not bad.

Well I opened this can of worms so I should respond.

I suggested a more visible/accessible location for Field Day to draw in more community folks, for instance the Big Rock Ball Fields.  Several folks stopped by last summer when we were there.  However, the park is not open to overnight camping.  So I was tasked with asking the City.  I did and they quickly said yes.  We didn't vote to make the change.  I suppose we should have a discussion at the next meeting.

Did I miss something.  Are we not able to have again at the farm?

 

Thanks,

Hi all,

 

At the March meeting I volunteered to ask the City for permission to have Field Day at the Big Rock Ball Fields.  Today they granted that permission.

 

We have permission to have 2 campers there overnight, Friday after set up and Saturday.  We will be in the area near Big Rock Road, and will try to do most of our work in the grassy area -where we met during the summer.  We will have to be creative about parking in the afternoon on Saturday as there will be a lot of Little League families coming in for games.  She will supply us with a key and we will lock the gate at night.
