As many are aware, Meg and I belong to the Loudoun Amateur Radio Group 
(LARG).  I am the station chief for the VHF/UHF station again this year. 
  Anyone from AMRAD that would like to come out and perhaps get some air 
time is encouraged to come out.

The VHF/UHF station usually works almost all the stations in the first 
couple of hours and the remaining time is used looking for fresh meat to 
finish out the field day period.  LARG has been a great bunch of guys to 
work with and here is your chance to get your feet wet without the wild 
flood of QSOs seen on HF.  Let me know if interested and we will work 
you in.

We have been offered an ICOM IC-910 as our radio.  A really nice 
transceiver.  I also plan to try running a digital TV receiver so we can 
watch the local Doppler radar for the current weather.  We will just 
have to see if the signals make it to the site.  Last year it was very 
helpful for avoiding passing thunderstorms.

Additionally, just come and help set up and hang out while others man 
the station.
