Come one Come all!

Once again the WETNET gang will be participating in the ARRL Field Day from the QTH of N7RIG in the beautiful Skagit valley.

Our special antenna project this year is a five element Bruce array for 40M, with a reflector. In addition we'll have a tri-band beam, 160M vertical (see last months QST), 40/80M dipole and a G5RV for the GOTA station.

As we've done for the past few years we've invited the Radio Amateurs of Skagit County to join us in the festivities. They will be providing the food, manning the GOTA station, the VHF/UHF station and demonstrating digital modes and an NVIS station setup.

We will be operating class 3A with the callsign K7IP and the GOTA station call of N7GDE.

Setup begins between 11am and noon on Friday with operating commencing at 11am Saturday and running until 11am Sunday.
