Field Day 2015

 June 27th & 28th

This year the Coffeyville Amateur Radio Club (WRCV) and the Independence Radio Club (NID) decided to be a joint venture in Field Day. We operated from the Coffeyville Clubhouse under the call sign of WRMG - The Montgomery County Amateur Radio Club.

Field Day worked out to be a real pleasurable experience for the Clubs. It was good weather, great band conditions and a lot of new friends. We had Reporter's there from the Caney Chronicle and the Independence Reporter.

Our friends at Valnet in Independence, Kansas volunteered their temporary tower for use at Field Day this year. It is pneumatic powered unit and only takes 35 psi to raise the tower sections. The antenna is at approx 50 feet, but it will go on up to 80 feet. Believe me we sure raised the attention of the passers by in Pfeister Park this weekend. The generator worked great and the Mobile E.O.C. ran flawless the whole weekend. A very good job to the Indy Club members who have been repairing the Mobile E.O.C. Thanks to Jason KDYEP, Russell NPGI, Dave KWI and Stuart KEEWR for the pictures. We would also like to thank Jim Miller our Montgomery County Emergency Manager - KCWAA  for his continued support of Amateur Radio in this community.

If you couldn't make it this year, you missed a great weekend.

Ken - NUB
