We'll operate QRP with 100% battery power again this year.
Because of the expected weather, we will operate Class F using the indoor Red Cross station as well as outdoors as much as possible.
Don't forget tables, chairs, and protection from sun/weather/insects.
We can never have too much coax!
Reminder: safety first at Field Day. Please be careful throughout the weekend. There will be a lot of cables and equipment so please watch your step and use (and watch) your head, too. We have an excellent safety record at DSRC Field Day: please keep it that way!
Menu: Lunch both days will feature our usual menu of grilled hot dogs, hamburgers, and veggie burgers. Sunday morning we'll continue our DSRC tradition of cooked-to-order Belgian waffles topped with fresh strawberries and whipped cream.
We look forward to a great Field Day and to seeing everyone there.

Pictured is the 30th medal in the distinguished Jewish-American
Hall of Fame series. It commemorates
21-year-old David Sarnoff, who relayed the names of the rescued from
the Carpathia's telegraph operator to newsmen and frantic family members,
and honors Isidore and Ida Straus, who tragically lost their
lives in the Titanic disaster on April 15, 1912.
On the reverse side is a poignant scene of a crowded lifeboat,
with the Titanic sliding into the ocean.
When the Titanic sank on its maiden voyage 1513 lives were lost.
These medals are dedicated to all the victims, so a maximum of
1513 medals have been authorized: 937 bronze, 500 pure silver,
and 50 10kt gold. For information please contact the
Jewish-American Hall of Fame, 5189 Jeffdale Avenue, Woodland Hills, CA 91364.
