I'll be operating 10m SSB and when that dies, maybe 20m SSB with our local repeater club as W1BRS - The Bears of Manchester. The phonetics are Whiskey ONE Boston Red Sox. Hope to work some of you during field day. Good Luck to all!

I'll be on working the SSB station with the club call, W5NC. We will also have on a 6m station just in case it opens, a CW station and a GOTA station. We are operating 2a, STX. from Tomball, Texas. Listen for the call. The GOTA will be W5NXS (I believe).

My field day doings will be minimal since this is the last full weekend before we go on vactation/to pick up the trailer. There is much to do!

However, next year, I will have a very nice portable hamshack and just might go for the entire 24 hours! (or however long the thing is...)

I was going to operate this weekend, but having been flat on my back for a couple of weeks now, I'm not going to take the RV. The local club I belong to goes out to a school for the weekend. I might drive out in my P/U for a couple of hours, if the Doctor says I can today.
