We will be meeting at 8 am on June 23rd for setup and will kick off at 1300 hours local time. We will be operating as a 2A class this year and will have a GOTA (Get On The Air) station for new hams and those interested in becoming amateur radio enthusiast. We will also have a VHF station set up, frequency to be announced (either 145.450 or 147.075), in the disaster trailer along with the GOTA station. If you want to come out and participate, please remember to familiarize yourself with the N1MM logging software. Please spend a few minutes with this video about the Field Day event and the operation of N1MM logging software, at the following: (https://youtu.be/s6wQK4c1s7M).  
Okay gang, if you need any information, questions, fills, or queries, please feel free to contact any of our members or me directly at w1law@yahoo.com and I will email you back or if you want to provide a phone number, I will call you back. 
We are going to have a great time, learn, fellowship, eat, and HAVE FUN and enjoy.
We look forward to seeing you there and please bring a guest to look around, ask questions, and get on the radio if you want. 
There will be no testing during the event however if you want to get you amateur radio license we will have a testing session coming up on July 21st, 2018 in Fulton so if you like what you see, then study and get ready, pass your test and join in on the fun and learning.

May meeting 2018

Good evening everybody!!
Our Monthly Meeting is next Tuesday May 8th, 2018 at our meeting room located at the Old Fulton Grammar School located at 603 South Cummings Street in Fulton, MS. The entrance will be on the south side of the building, or the right side of the building if you are looking at the front doors. There is also parking in the back and is accessed from S Clifton Street. 
We will begin at the normal time of 6:45 PM and after the business meeting, the program will be on operation of N1MM Plus logger as we will be using this software in the upcoming field day June 23rd and 24th. I hope to have a dummy example or two set up and everybody will get an opportunity to get hands on time with the software. We will need loggers as well as radio operators for the event. The logger being able to accurately log and quickly enter information is just as important as the radio contact itself. Without an accurate log it is as if the contact was never made and that time wasted. 
We look forward to seeing those who can make it out.
Take care and God Bless.

Feb 2018 meeting NEW LOCATION!!

Good Evening all.

Our February meeting is closely approaching and will be on Tuesday February 13th, 2018. There is a conflict with the Fulton City Hall Board Room and we will be meeting in a different location. We will be meeting in the conference room in the Davis C Cole Student Services building located on West Main Street at the corner of Mississippian Street in Fulton on the Itawamba Community College campus. We have the room reserved from 6 PM to 8 PM. Due to the time restraint we will begin the meeting at 6:30 PM and try and be out by 8 PM. We will discuss the conflict for the usual meeting place at this meeting. Also this is a food and drink free setting so please accommodate by bring no food or drink. And there is no smoking on the campus property. There is a canteen inside the same building and I understand that there is food available for one price. if you want to come early and take advantage of that. 

Due to the uncertainty of accommodations for presentations etc, the program is still being determined but probably something with a handout etc.

For those who have not paid their yearly dues ($25) please see Curtis Tate (AK5CT) if you need to take care of that.

That’s all for now so remember, meeting starts at 6:30 at the Davis C Cole student services building at West Main and Mississippian Street in Fulton. Included in this email is a map of the location.

Take care and God Bless.
