>> "HAM RADIO FIELD DAY 2018" is being sponsored by the Washington County Amateur Radio Club, and will take place Saturday And Sunday, June 23rd-24th, at the Prairie Hill Voluntary Fire Department's Meeting Hall, just a 10 minute drive northwest of Brenham on Highway 50.  Note that this facility is fully air-conditioned. This accommodation will be a welcome addition to any houston area summer-time event. Plan to bring the whole family.
>> 
>> This will be a time of fun, a time to cellebrate our hobby, with a focus on our tradition of public emergency service. Think of it as fun and fellowship while doing ham radio. All interested amateur radio operators are invited to participate, regardless of your home qth, county, or club affiliations.
>> 
>> Some participants will choose to join an "ARRL Field Day Team", who will be attempting to be "in for the count" on the National ARRL Contest. But that is not for everyone. Others will opt for an "Emergency Exercise Team", which will not have the strict logging and reporting requirements. Still others will choose to participate as individual Go-Box Stations.  In any case, each person can engage in all the activities in a manner consistent with his own schedule requirements, desires and interests.
>> 
>> All amateur radio operators wishing to engage in the Emergency Exercises, whether as a team or as an individual, are asked to preregister by Sunday, June 17th, 2018, one week before the event. No fees are required for registration.  This is to provide planning information to the FD Team. It is optional, in any case. All hams interested in participationing will be accomodated, even "walk-ins", who have not preregistered.
>> 
>> Reservations must be made in advance for the Saturday Lunch and Evening Dinner. See the FD Guide, for details.
>> 
>> The FD call-in frequency will be 443.25+ mhz fm  (with a CTCSS tone of 103.5 hz).
>> 
>> The Ham Radio Field Day 2018 Guide/Schedule is available for download as a PDF file. It includes how to preregister for the Emergency Exercises, how to make reservations for the noon and evening Saturday meals, as well as full event details.
