Welcome To


The Ellijay Amateur Radio Society FD 2006


To All:

The 2006 Field Day site was the Ellijay Saddle Club grounds. We had some concerns about this site due to the power line in the area It turns out the power line noise wasn't bad at all. What was a complaint was the Hotdog stand we where using for a command center was a bit on the small side. Especially when (you guessed it!) it started to rain and everybody had to pile inside. The restrooms where over near the ball field and the crowds from ball games competed with us on occasion. All in all it was another successful FD and we had a great time.
