WOOD COUNTY ARES BULLETIN NR 19.39 DATE: September 29, 2019
SUBJECT: DO IT WHILE IT'S FRESH
Did you participate in Field Day this past June? Did you or your group have any problems or challenges that needed your attention? If you were able to overcome the challenges, that's great. What about the challenges that you couldn’t correct due to limited time before the Field Day event?
It won't be long before Field Day will be upon us again, but what if there is an actual event that needs the same attention that you weren't able to overcome in the limited time. Now would be the time to start planning on how to overcome the challenges so you don't have to face them again, and maybe in a real emergency.
This year a few new experiments were tried, some of them worked just fine, but some need to be worked on, corrected, or modified if they will ever be used in an actual incident. Start now while the challenges are fresh on you mind, and don't wait until it's too late to overcome them. Remember by this time next year you will have a lot of new challenges to be working on. Don't let them add to the ones you already have.
