CTRI Field Day – 2012
(A preview of February 2013 – NP3U)

Here is the plan for “Field Day” 2012 for CTRI Contest Group: 

     At 1300 on Saturday, June 23, 2012, we will gather at the QTH of our past president, W1AN.
We will put together two RTTY stations using K3’s and RTTY Meister stations running N1MM Logger.
Our objective is to activate two RTTY stations with computers networked together running the N1MM
Logger.  We will be keeping track of problems and potential challenges while we throw contacts to
other Field Day stations.  We’re going to use commerical electric power, and we will use the
W1AN antenna farm as our pipeline to the ionosphere.

     K3’s will be supplied by K3IU and K1DM.  W1AN’s K3 will be “standing by” while serving as our
“multiplier seeker” station.  RTTY Meisters are being supplied by W1AN.

     What we need from members planning on traveling to KP4 land in February is your participation
in this and upcoming training/practice events.  This will be a team effort, and we’re holding try-outs
for the team by organizing these practice events that coincide with RTTY contests.

     We want this Saturday to be a time of perfecting of operator skills, practicing set-up, and
preparing to meet Murphy’s attempts to stall progress.  We’d also expect to have some fun playing
ham radio.

     So here’s the summary of the event:

                    Time:  1300 EDT
                    Place: QTH of W1AN
                    What to bring:  Your self
                                    some snacks

     We look forward to seeing you at “Field Day 2012” for CTRI Contest Group.

Best 73 Mike, K1DM, President, CTRI Contest Group

Reminder! NEQP 2012 logs due Tuesday avatar

If you have not yet submitted your log for the 2012 NEQP please do so ASAP…the sponsor’s deadline is NLT Tuesday 5 June.  Submit logs to:  logs@neqp.org with your electronic log as an attachment.  Even logs with just a few QSOs are appreciated by the sponsor and our club.

If you used your assigned special event 1×1 callsign during NEQP, ensure that specific c/s appears in your log callsign header.  Use your regular c/s in the operator’s c/s header.  Double-check as well that the NEQP site receives your log with the proper callsign used during the event.

And… anyone using their CTRI CG 20th anniv 1×1 c/s *anytime between May 1-15 2012* should *also* send a copy of their log to Pat NG1G for future QSL and certificate purposes.

Any questions regarding final log submittal…just ask here.
