Hello All,
This is an informational bulletin about the McLean Field Day Site, new this year.
I have been running around like a chicken with my head cut off, gathering needed supplies.
It will be hot, muggy and that's not all--there is a chance of afternoon thundershowers.
So far, the minimalist set-up (one table many radios) is going well, the canopy was demo set-up last evening, the generator reservation has been made with another ham, the supplies are almost all done, the only thing right now which is still not nailed down
 is timing to get all of this stuff over to the site.
I am assured by my co-worker that he will be at my hosue at 9:00am.
This gives me five hours or so to get all of the stuff to the field and have it set up.
I still need to put together a wire antenna for 10 meters and I need to pick up a  few items from the store.
I realized last night that it will be too much to cook onsite, and we have wonderful restaurants with air conditioning less than a mile away.
So after all is over on Sunday, all who show up, will car-a-van over to a nearby restaurant to enjoy some prepared foods.... saves time and hassle of cooking and grilling.
Then whoever brings their swimming trunks can take a dip in the pool.
I have posted final rules about the site on my website 
go to to view them.
I appreciate all the support which ai have recieved from all and will formally thanks them soon.
The following individuals and companies have supplied stuff for the site and supplies so far.
McLean Hardware
Ventures in Video
Home Depo
James Monaghan, N9JHM
William Everett
James Buchanan, IV
Keith Bregman
Rite Aid
TJI Electronics
Mike Chesnea, KA2ZEV
LOCATION : look on the website on FIeld Day 08-- go to searchbox on top backspace , then type in KG4RRN . then click satellite and zoom in on it.
its a real nice area, and I will enjoy operating form there, and the best part is its right down the stret form my house !!
I will hope that word gets spread and more volunteers show up to assist in set-up. This will 
be great if everyone works together to make it successful.
73 all,
Bob Rice, KG4RRN
