Field Day June 27-28 2020 2PM our time Saturday to 2PM our time Sunday
This year with the pandemic clubs are not able to host a normal Field Day us included with that said, it will still be taking place with a few changes to FD rules. What most people are doing are running a Class 1E or 1D station from there home QTH or partnering with another club member to run a class 2 station, if you do partner up please stay safe and maintain the social distance rules. The repeater is open for use to be social to other members working FD Field day rules have had a slight change from past years just for this year.1) For Field Day 2020 only, Class D stations may work all other Field Day stations, including other Class D stations, for points.
2) In addition, for 2020 only, an aggregate club score will be published, which will be the sum of all individual entries indicating a specific club (similar to the aggregate score totals used in ARRL affiliated club competitions).

I will be participating this year hope to hear you on the bands.
