(Purcellville, VA. April 22, 2009) Members of the Field Day Committee of the Loudoun Amateur Radio Group conducted
a survey of a potential Field Day site on Route 601 in extreme western Loudoun County. The site sits on the Loudoun - Clarke County Line. Grant Russell - KB3EMT had done the coordination and
nominated this location. His presentation at the April 2009 monthly meeting encouraged us all to conduct an on-site visit. Members attending the survey were Field Day Chairman, Jeff Slusher
- KE5APC, Grant Russell - KB3EMT, Jay Ives - KI4TXP, John Unger - W4AU and Norm Styer - AI2C.
Grant Russell also provided some very nice photographs and they are available on-line here:
The site will accommodate our station layouts and support facilities very nicely. There are no shelters; so, sufficient tentage or mobile shelters will be required. Two large US Army GP Medium
Tents and a smaller 24 x 12 portable car shelter is recommended. And, of course, include a Port a-John. The site is high and plans for storms, strong winds, and lightning protection are paramount.
Site evacuation plans are necessary.
