Winter Field Day 2020 is just around the corner! The date is January 25th and 26th of 2020.
We will operate from the Club station from 2:00 PM to 7:00 PM Saturday, and 7:00 AM to 2:00 PM Sunday. We will not be onsite overnight.
Current plans are to have an SSB station and a digital station. We will work in one hour shifts, but you can sign up multiple times if you like. For the SSB station, we’ll try to have an operator and a logger. The digital station will typically have only one person operating and logging.
A sign-up sheet is available online if you are interested Go to https://w4cq.org/signups2020
Note: You do not have to be signed into the website to sign up for Winter Field Day. Ignore the message on the SignUp page that mentions that.
The 2019 W4CQ Christmas Party was held on December 12, 2019 at the Salvation Army. We had a good turnout, enjoyed some great fellowship, and had some great dishes to devour.
