Even though Field Day is not technically a contest, it is one of the best
opportunities to showcase "contesting" to lots of operators (and visitors)
that do not normally operate contests.


I hope that you will participate with a Field Day group and encourage young
and non-experienced operators. Teach by example. Sit with them while they
learn to "call CQ" or search and pounce. Help them learn a logging program.
Show them how to install a dipole.


The contesting skills that we take for granted need to be shared with
others. Field Day is a super chance to do this.


Many of us got our contesting feet wet at Field Day, take this once a year
opportunity to "pass it on". Be a contesting mentor. 


See you in Field Day!


Be safe!
