The topic of Field Day comes up at every meeting; If we can’t muster our troops alone, do we combine with another Field Day group to benefit both organizations? In 2006, after three years of going it alone, we combined with the North Idaho KARS group (Kootenai Amateur Radio Service) at our usual Rathdrum oasis provided by Doug W3AS who worked there. We worked with KARS for two years and that finally ended. What is your opinion? Here are some pictures of the event.

We owe it all to Doug Brede W3AS for providing the Field Day location with the large tent up when we arrived!
