ARRL Field Day is this week!
Saturday and Sunday, 25-26 June
Brian Bachmann Park, College Station, TX

Important safety notes:
- If you will be working around the antenna trailers, you must have closed-toe shoes (no crocs, sandals, or flip-flops), a hard hat, and safety glasses.
- It will be very hot. Watch the weather forecast, dress appropriately and bring a water bottle with you. You will need to drink water frequently, stay in the shade as much as possible, and take frequent breaks. We will have fans on-site, some air-conditioned space for recovery, and plenty of ice. You will really need to take care of yourself. Here is a link to the National Weather Service article about heat safety: https://www.weather.gov/safety/heat
