Bonelli Bluffs RV Resort, 1440 Camper View Drive, San Dimas, CA 91773 Site# B181 & B182
It’s Official, GOTAhams has reserved, and payed for a beautiful location for our Field Day 2020. It is Bonelli Bluffs RV resort and campground at Bonelli Park/Puddingstone lake. We will be in a different site than we had in 2019. We will be in “B” section spaces 181 and 182. We have a much better view to the east overlooking Bracket Field Airport and more space for our antennas. I’m hoping some of our team captains will have time during the next few months to visit and assess the site.
Setup will start Friday 6/26 around 12 noon (check in time). Saturday we’ll have breakfast at 6:00 am and then finish set up to be On The Air by 11:00 am (contest start).
It is never too soon to start planning! This serves not only for our “Field Day” but in our regular monthly “Field Ops” and any of our Emcomms (emergency preparedness practices).
One of our “Lessons Learned” from the 2019 Field Day is better antenna planning and placement to mitigate intermodulation (overmodulation) between stations/bands.
Mark Arlotti KM6AHY has volunteered as the 2020 Field Day committee chairperson and we have an outline for what should be considered for teams to focus on pre-Field Day. Members should definitely consider being on more than one team and focus on things that YOU are passionate about or would like to learn more about. Consider your physical limitations and work within those limitations i.e. If you have lifting restriction don’t volunteer for antenna construction! etc.
