Some Field Day thoughts:
If you decide to participate in Field Day from Sesqui then you can either use your own callsign or you can ask Dan for approval to use W4CAE while you are located at Sesgui. If you use W4CAE then the two rules changes will not apply to you because Pete will take care of submitting the Cabrillo to ARRL properly.
If you decide to participate in Field Day from your home or mobile then one of the rule changes WILL apply to you. During Field Day you will be using your own callsign and logging with whatever software logging program you like. After the event is finished you will send in your Cabrillo (or just go online and type in your number of QSO’s to the ARRL web site) to ARRL and IF you want to share your points with the club (its your choice, its your points and they stay your points, you just want to share them) then you MUST follow one simple instruction. On the logging software AND the ARRL web site it will ask you for the club name. The official club name is:
That’s what you type in. Anything else and I have no idea who you will share your points with.
We are not encouraging operators to stay home. We are encouraging operators to stay safe, and if staying home is what you feel comfortable with then operate from your home radio room and when the Field Day event is over please consider typing in the club name so we as a club can show good participation with this flagship event.
