[PLUG] OT: Amateur Radio Field Day Weekend This Saturday June 25th 2PM

Field Day is an annual amateur radio exercise, widely sponsored by IARU regions and member organizations, encouraging emergency communications preparedness among amateur radio operators. In the United States, it is typically the largest single emergency preparedness exercise in the country, with over 30,000 operators participating each year. Field Day is always the fourth full weekend of June, beginning at 1800 UTC Saturday and running through 2059 UTC Sunday.

I will be participating at the PhilMont Field Day event at Fort Washington State Park.

There will be a Get On The Air (GOTA) station for those who are interested or even just curious. We can get you on the air.

At 7pm at the GOTA station there will be an informal presentation on Linux in the Ham Shack.

There is a lot of crossover of communities in Amateur Radio. If at all interested, check it out.
