2017 Field Day

The club set up at the Lloydminster Campus of Lake College this year.  We missed the wet weather that was in the area.  We operated 3 stations from the College back up power supply.  The evening was a cool one for those of use that stayed and camped out.

2016 Field Day

The club is planning to operate during ARRL Field Day 2016 with several stations using temporary antennas at a different place each year.  This tests our ability to respond to an emergency in which supplementary communications capability is required.  Last year we operated from a site near the Lloydminster Lakeland College campus.  In 2016 we intend to set up at the solar power research centre on the west side of the Vermilion Lakeland College campus.  We will be powering all our equipment with solar generated power.  In charge are Don VE6VAC and Joe VE5JM.  Plans will be finalised at our June meeting. and via club emails.
