operating Field Day this coming weekend . VA3RAC the Radio Amateurs of

Sunday.We will be operating from the Museum of Science and Technology and
will have CW, SSB and  digital signals  on all bands from 160M to 70 CM.
Please try to make as many contacts as possible as we will be sending out

single mode . For those people in upper New York State and Vermont make sure
to give those beams a work out by looking North. The grid square is FN25 Our
