Field Day Rapidly Approaching

Field Day 2017 is upon us! Field Day is being held on June 24-25, 2017. This year the Sullivan Amateur Radio Club is setting up at Meramec State Park, south of Sullivan, Missouri. Everyone is invited to come join in the fun of getting out with family and friends to enjoy the world of Amateur Radio. We will start setting up around 11am and plan t be on the air making contacts by 1pm.We will be operating from 1pm on Saturday June 24 and finishing up at 1pm on Sunday June 25.

Drive south on Hwy 185 approximately 4 miles to the entrance to the park. Enter the park and you will come to a three way stop. Go to the left and stay on that road until you get to Fisher Cave. The road on the map has been highlighted.  Parking will be limited at the campsites so please park in the parking lot for Fisher Cave. In the camping area we will have the club banner out so that you will know where we are.  If you need assistance in getting things for FD to the campsite, let us know when you get there and we will have someone help you get the stuff brought over.

We will be operating as a 2A setup this year, using the special event call N0S.  Anything you think you may need for operating (rigs, power, coax, lights, etc, etc)…bring it along!

We will be monitoring the 440 repeater (444.600 + offset, 141.3 tone) as well as 146.500 2m simplex for a talk-in from our site.
Please remember to be safe driving to and from FD 2017! We want you to be members of our club for a long time to come!
