Field Day 2021

Independent Radio Club

Lake Casitas Campground

June 25, 2021 through June 27, 2021

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 25 at 11am and operating begins at 11am Saturday June 26 through 11am Sunday June 27.

Where:

We will be operating in the Lake Casitas Campground near Ojai. To get there take Highway 101 north just past Ventura to Highway 33. Go north on Highway 33 to Highway 150. Take Highway 150 west to Lake Casitas Campground.

Talk in on 146.550 MHz.

We have reserved eight RV sites in Campground Egret. We will be in sites E12, E13, E14, E15, E21, E22, E23 and E24. Please let us know you want a site so we can put one aside one for you. These are RV only sites; however, we can have tents if it’s in a site with an RV. If you want to tent camp please talk to Leon. There are electric and water hookups at each site. The campground has full toilet facilities and showers are available (with token). Campsite fees are $50 per night payable in advance. There is a maximum of eight people in a campsite and they charge $10 per night for any extra vehicles. Campfires are allowed in the provided fire rings. If you want us to hold a site for you MUST let us know by Monday June 21. If we don’t have enough interest to fill all of the reserved sites we are going to cancel the unused sites.

You must reserve a site by Monday June 21!

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?
