Field Day 2019

Independent Radio Club

McGill Campground

June 21, 2019 through June 23, 2019

Join us for the Independent Radio Club Field Day event! We will be running 2 HF phone stations and a VHF/UHF weak signal station. We plan to operate 80M to 70cm. This is a great way to try a new mode or band you haven’t had a chance to operate before. Setup begins on Friday June 21 at 11am and operating begins at 11am Saturday June 22 through 11am Sunday June 23. We have the campsites from Thursday on so you can start camping the day before if you like.


We will be operating in the McGill Campground near Frazier Park. To get there take I-5 north, to the Frazier Mountain Park exit. Go west on Frazier Mountain Park Road approximately 7 miles to the Lockwood Valley Road. Keep right and proceed on Cuddy Valley Road. Continue 5 miles to the “Y” in the road and veer left. Proceed 5 miles after the first snow gate and the campground will be on the right.

Talk in on 146.550 MHz and 445.340 MHz - pl 71.9.

We have reserved three tent sites and three RV sites in loop 3. We will be in sites 24, 26, 70, 72, 77 and 78. Please let us know you want a site so we can put one aside one for you. RV’s are permitted with a 26’ size limit. There are no electric and water hookups available. No potable water is available in camp so be sure to bring your own. The campground has vault toilets. Campsite fees are $25 per night payable at the campsite. There is a maximum of eight people in a campsite and they charge $10 per night for any extra vehicles. Campfires are allowed in USFS provided fire rings.

We will be having our traditional potluck dinner Saturday night. Everyone should bring a side dish and their own drinks. The club will provide the main course.

Everyone should bring the following items:

  • Food and Camping gear
  • Headphones with audio adapter
  • Flashlight or Lantern
  • Chair
  • Jacket or Warm Clothing for the evening
  • Extra Fuses!!!

You are welcome to bring your rig; however, we should have enough rigs for everyone to operate. If you plan to go, we would appreciate it if you could let us know. E-mail Ken Chafin or mail in the coupon to help us plan. To have a guaranteed site you need to pay the campground fees in advance. Any questions?
