Field Day 2016 Friday setup

I plan to be at the club at 0900 tomorrow (Friday) to start getting things set up. The biggest things are shelters and masts. Make sure you have sunscreen, a hat and cool clothes. The forecast is for nice weather, but it can get hot really quickly. Bring your HT and we'll use the club simplex frequency to coordinate while we're on site. Let's have fun!
