OVEC will be holding Field Day 2017 at the same location as last year: 4962 Beechwood Road Cincinnati, Ohio 45244.
This year we will be operating as N8A (special event callsign to commemorate the annual K9MUL Field Day) as a 3AB station – 3 transmitters, non-commercial and non-generator power, QRP.
We will be running a GOTA station for inactive hams or unlicensed people who are interested in ham radio! This is your chance to get on the air with a coach who will guide you through making contacts.
Once again we will be experimenting with a number of different antenna types, from standard dipoles to NVIS inverted vees, and for the first time we will have a 10-15-20 meter beam.
All are welcome at our Field Day site, licensed or unlicensed. We will be having a potluck dinner on Saturday at 6:30 pm – please bring a dish or a side to share.
We will be monitoring 447.800 so feel free to contact us on the simplex frequency.
