Subject: [K6MEP] µField Day this Saturday!
Last chance reminder for the BORED Net µField Day this Saturday, with the
Ventura County Amateur Radio Club at their home stomping grounds at the
As usual, we'll go from about 11:00 to 3:00 pm. Some people may come
earlier or later; some people may stay earlier or later. It's always very
informal. Bring your portable HF setup, bring a handheld, bring your home
station and see how hard it is to set it up remotely, whatever you feel
like. The main goal is to hang around with other hams.
This is the third time the BORED net has held a µFD with a host club, and
it's always been a good way to meet people from other parts of the county
and other clubs.
Dave Schmidt AI6VX from VCARC will be providing charcoal and firing up the
awesome barbecue pit. Bring something to cook up if you like. Bring your
own drinks as well. The Dudley House offers 120v power and restrooms, plus
a large lawn area and covered patio. This is definitely going to be the
most luxurious µFD yet...
Dudley House is at 197 N. Ashwood Avenue, on the SW corner of Ashwood and
Loma Vista. The best parking will be in the medical plaza next door, which
is accessed via Loma Vista. The Entrance to that lot is at
34.277760893173294, -119.24104931794436. What3words is
hesitate.margin.singles. (What3words now works on any cell phone without
needing the internet to find a location, by the way.) If we all park at the
Med plaza, there is more parking lot available at Dudley House for those
who need a paved area to set up, and for people with difficulty walking.
The lots are adjacent, with a 4 foot flat planter between them.
Enter where the pink arrow is. Dudley House is circled in yellow.

VCARC will host a BORED Net 'Micro-Field Day' at the Dudley House 197 N.
Ashwood Dr. Ventura CA 93003 from 11AM until 3PM on October 29.
These µField Day events were started by The BORED Net and is a great way to
hang out with a bunch of other hams, blow the dust off your equipment, and
get more experience with your equipment in a portable setting. All hams
are invited. Previous locations have been Lake Sherwood near Westlake,
Rancho Potrero in Newbury Park, and CSUCI campus. One of the events had
16 HF rigs operating!
The BORED Net µField Days are also a great opportunity for newer hams to
see different setups in use, or to bring their own equipment for help.
They're open to everyone in the county, from all clubs (or not affiliated
with any club), licensed or just interested.
AC power, a bathroom, and "Fire and ice" will be provided (a BBQ pit and
ice), so bring something to grill for yourself.
Hope to see you there!
