>The next meeting of the Vienna Wireless Society will take place this
Friday, June 24, at our Field Day site—Burke Lake Park on Route 123 south
of Fairfax.  
>Lots of folks will be headed that way in the mid-afternoon to get a head
start on set-up (the rules say it’s kosher after 2:00 pm), so feel free to
join us whenever you can.  President Tom N4ZPT plans to hold a short biz
meeting around 7:30 pm.  
>As Burke Lake is a bit beyond the comfortable range of the club’s
repeater, your best bet is to monitor 146.79(-) for chatter and talk-in help.
>Note that we will relocate to our temporary home—the basement of the
Vienna Community Center—for the meetings of July 8 and 22, and August 12.
Our annual dinner at Wu’s Garden is August 26.
>The logistics of Field Day appear to be in place.  All we need are folks
to actually operate the stations.  Once the bands spring into action at
2:00 pm Saturday, there’ll be something for everybody—CW, SSB, digital, HF,
VHF, and who knows what else.  Not ready to jump in the contest-style
pileups?  Logging contacts is a great way to see how it’s done.  (And with
the automated logging programs, it’s a breeze.  What a wonderful world this
>And to top it off, you get a full weekend of that good food and that good
ol’ VWS fellowship.  It don’t get no better than that.
>If Field Day doesn’t satisfy your appetite for operating, remember that
the VWS 10 meter Pow Wow Net meet every Thursday at 8:30 on 28.444 MHz.
There’s also the weekly 2m net on the 146.685 repeater Mondays at 8:00 pm,
and the VWS Digital Net Tuesdays at 8:00 pm on its summer home of 3.578MHz
USB with a 1500Hz offset.  That net usually starts with PSK31, but often
will switch to other modes depending on the wishes/whims of the folks present.
>And don’t forget the weekly Tuesday lunch, 11:30 am at Neighbor's
Restaurant, at the corner of Park and Cedar Streets in Vienna.
