"How Not To Sound Like a LID on Field Day"
by Dean Straw, N6BV

Dean will give a rousing demonstration on "How Not to Sound Like a LID on Field Day." This is in preparation for this year's all out effort at the PAARA Field Day. Be ready to chuckle at some of the common mistakes that newcomers -- and even old timers -- make while trying to communicate efficiently on Field Day.
