The QSY Society Amateur Radio Club is operating Field Day at Dutchess

County’s Bowdoin Park, Pavilion 4 from 2pm Saturday June 25 through 2pm Sunday June 26. Bowdoin Park is

located at 85 Sheafe Road in the town of Poughkeepsie.

You’re invited to come watch, operate, and meet other hams. Bring friends and family. If you can’t, but want to contact us on the air, we’re operating as K2QS. (GOTA is K2CXP)

We’re also operating a GOTA (Get On The Air) station, especially for those new hams, inactive hams, or non-hams (with a licensed control operator at the operating point). Technician and Novice class licensees are also encouraged to participate.

Joining us on Sunday will be the Dutchess County Office of Emergency Response, with their staffed Mobile Command Vehicle.

Questions? Contact Paul KD2CCW pebork@gmail.com 845 705-9281 or Scott W2NTV at w2ntv@arrl.net or 845 705-7247. Visit our club website at http://qsysociety.org and see past Field Days in the photo gallery.

We will be using 146.970 PL 100 as the repeater to coordinate talk-in for those of use who will be going there for the first time. As you get closer 146.500 will be our simplex.
