Field Day 2022 on the grounds of Western State Hospital - June 24-26

ARRL FD22 LogoRadio Club of Tacoma will return this year to an actual "in the field" Field Day.  The site and setup will be the same as that used in years prior to the pandemic:  Friday morning load-up at the clubhouse, deployment on the Western State Hospital campus starting around 11 AM and continuing throughout the day and Saturday morning as needed, then contesting from 11 AM Saturday to 11 AM Sunday.  Teardown is usually pretty quick, and we're typically gone from the site by 2PM Sunday.


SITE

As we have in a number of past years, we'll occupy the southeastern portion of the Western State Hospital campus.  It is directly across from Ft. Steilacoom Park on Lakewood Blvd.  Here's a road map, and a site map can be found below.

STATION MANAGERS

Do you want to operate but have limited time available?  Please contact, in advance, the station manager(s) responsible for the station/mode you are interested in, using email addresses shown below.  Generally (at the station manager's discretion), operators sign up for 1-hour, non-consecutive blocks.  However, if you find nobody is signed up to follow you, you may usually continue operating.  It's seldom the case that schedules fill up, especially at night.

Continuing the practice established in the last few years, a large single shelter will house all of our HF stations:

Camp chefs W7PFU and K7HTU will feed us during the weekend.  Really, this might be the best part of the whole event.
