Field Days 2019 has come and went. The band conditions yesterday, June 22 could have been better, to say the least. There were some problems with the 3 element Yagi and the day of the event is not the time to find out. That being said, thanks to Mathieu for hosting us this year. Thanks to Misha for bringing all the stuff in his truck and to Yvon for helping him.
Many hands make for quick work. Next year I hope to see many hands get involved before the actual day of the event. I would have liked to spend more time there but there was family birthday yesterday and our niece had her high school graduation from Odessey High School this afternoon.
To those that came out and helped, thank you. Sunday night is RF energy night in Moncton. See you on the bands.

Thanks to all who took and submitted photos for this post.
Another good turnout for the June MAARC Meeting this morning in Riverview. With the start time being 9:30am, the meeting seems to fly by. Good attendance and we covered a lot of ground. The Tek-Talk was a presentation by Bernie, VE9BGC and a demonstration of his 20 meter vertical "Rocket" antenna. Thanks Bernie. - Ross

Field Day is ham radio's open house. Every June, more than 40,000 hams throughout North America set up temporary transmitting stations in public places to demonstrate ham radio's science, skill and service to our communities and our nation. It combines public service, emergency preparedness, community outreach, and technical skills all in a single event. Field Day has been an annual event since 1933, and remains the most popular event in ham radio.
