ARRL Field Day 2012 was another great event for LARK.
Joe, KKØSD served as Field Day chairman.
We added an additional station this year, and operated 4A (four stations on alternative power) from Stokes-Thomas City Park in Watertown. We utilized most of our club-owned equipment, along with several members' equipment. Again this year, Duane KKØKK, brought his solar power van for part of the event.
Operating trailers were supplied by Dave (KDØLJG), Chuck (KBØVXD), and The Salvation Army. This year we also used LARK's "new" camper trailer, which was donated by Laurel (KB8HMR) Our "usual" CW operator, Dave NØDL, was not able to attend this year, so we utilized computer-based CW transmission and reception. Several operators were able to operate CW this way. LARK's networked computers were again used so that all contacts were logged to one central server and statistics could be viewed at any station. We also connected all locations using a custom 802.11G wireless bridge provided by Kevin (KBØLCR). Internet service was again provided by Data Truck.
