Field Day 2019, this weekend june 22 - 23.
« on: June 20, 2019, 1803 UTC »
                 Field Day 2019,   http://www.arrl.org/Field-Day   , so all, but the WARC Bands and 60M, will be hopping. Even a PSA for it. Now, if only the T-storms can stay away.
I was asked if I liked the 80's pop band The Go-Go's, and I answered that I listened to them, like many other Top 40 pop bands of the time, so Eh. However, I did mention that I did kind of feel sorry for them, since I thought that the band members couldn't have sex. I was then asked, "What do you mean?" My reply was, "Duh... They sing about it themselves, their lips are sealed!".

I won't be able to attend Field day officially this year, but look forward to working some stations. My last Field day I was assigned with 80m CW at 9:30 am...... very exciting. I also remember there was an Italian man there working 20m CW. He was an excellent operator with a great fist, but what a diva. He was making request as if he was a celebrity and acted as if everyone should just be enjoying the privilege of basking in his glory.

I stopped by one of the club setups in a city park yesterday to see what was going on.  I noticed a lot more CW and FT8 operation than in previous years.  Despite conditions, they seemed to be making good progress.
