Field Day 2017

Audie Murphy / American Cotton Museum

FieldDay2017Logo-SM 2Field Day Location:

This year, the MFARC will setup Field Day at the Audie Murphy / American Cotton Museum.   Audie Murphy was a local World War II hero who is known as the most decorated American combat soldier.   Audie Murphy was born just North of the city of Greenville, TX.  The museum that bears his name honors Audie along with other local veterans besides hosting the Museum of American Cotton.   The MFARC will be setting up Field Day on the museum grounds to allow public access.  A GOTA (Get On The Air) station will be setup for the public to try ham radio out for themselves.  The club will also have a guest information table in order to provide free information about Ham Radio and how to get a license though the club's free licensing classes held throughout the year. 

Field Day Configuration

WD5GSL will operate class 3A on generator power.  Look for a GOTA station and a chance to eat some good food.  For antennas, it looks like we will get that big vertical skywave with radials along with the 35' OCF dipole.  There will be other antennas there as well.  Several of the club members will be using their rigs for HF operation.  There will be CW, RTTY and PSK31 modes, besides the usual Phone.  The group will be using N1MM logger software through a wireless network. 

The Museum

The Audie Murphy American Cotton Museum is located on the West Bound I-30 service road just West of Division Street in the city of Greenville, Texas.  For more information about the museum, please visit  The Audie Murphy American Cotton Museum
