With the ARRL Field Day set for the fourth weekend in June, it may be prudent to not only consider the personnel, supplies, antennas, and equipment needed to run this 24 hour emergency communications exercise, but also the measures taken to insure the safety of all participants, observers, and invited guests.
In this well-produced video, Michael Martens (KB9VBR) discusses the steps needed to have a successful Field Day operation without worrying about accidents.
Michael covers a variety of issues, including generators, antenna placement, site security, and the handling of equipment. Also, you may want to consider factors of weather, sanitation, site placement, and medical treatment. Michael does an excellent job of covering what you need to know about Field Day, from both the equipment and personnel side to questions about security and station efficiency.
