This is the page for the 2012 VHF National Field Day.

We have put in a joint application with Basingstoke ARC, they will be using their club call on 4m and 6m, we will be using G3KMI/P on 2m and 70cm.


Thursday Night - Meeting

  • Go through kit list to see if we've forgotten anything/everything.
  • Power - do we have the right/enough cables for everything.
  • Plan assembling of kit on Friday.

Friday Night

  • Assemble as much kit as possible into Phil's car, the rest into Morse's car.
  • Food run to asda?


  • Phil will take car up, pick Henry up from Basingstoke station at 8:40 and aim to be on-site by 9am.
  • Morse will follow with Chris O and Chris P.
  • Contest starts at 3pm local time.


  • Morning - G3KMI HF Net - Andrew, Graeme?
  • 3pm Contest Ends

I propose we have an evening early next week where we get together and clean the tents/tarps, as many do not belong to us and we'd like to be able to borrow them in the future!


We will be sharing a site used by the Basingstoke ARC, the site is ~160m ASL and has great views from north-west through to south-east. There is a remote station on the same hill that regularly gets 10GHz contacts with Germany.


We will be operating on 2m and 70cm as completely separate stations, both using the G3KMI/P callsign.
