This year if your looking for Field Day locations in Ottawa and area according to the ARRL Field Day Map on line you have a few to choose from.
According to the map the Ottawa Amateur Radio Club will be operating VE3RC at St Pauls University in Old Ottawa East. Set up would start around 10am and as usual the talk in would be on the club repeater VE2CRA 146.940 (-) CTCSS 100.0 The OARC normally runs a 2A station. Check their website for more information.
The Ottawa Valley Mobile Radio Club will be at on the grounds of the Canada Science and Technology Musuem on St Laurent Blvd. Their website has not been updated with their Field Day info yet but I have heard some people talking about the Club Communications trailer being set up for Field Day so they will be there. The OVMRC Club Repeater is VE3TWO and its Frequency is 147.300 (+).
The Ottawa Valley QRP Society will be set up in the Hampton Park area of Ottawa just north of the 417 on Island Park Drive. Once again setup should be around 10am and they are less structured (more efficient) than some of the larger clubs. Last year they did very well concidering they were operating at QRP power levels. Well worth dropping in to visit them if you have the chance.
Now if you happen to be driving into Ottawa on the 416 ( or leaving Ottawa on the 416) the VE3ORF/3730 Group will be holding their Field Day in Kemptville Ontario. Note that this is a new location as they outgrew their old location in Kars Ontario. Talk in will be on VE3ORF 146.850 (-) CTCSS 151.4 .
So there you have it… If you needed something to do this weekend you can visit a bunch of Field Day sites… But its always fun to work them on the air so …
