Let's face it, Field Day is always more fun with more participants. This year, QRZ is sponsoring a forum where you can publicize your Field Day event and let the whole world know that you'll be on the air for the most exciting contest in ham radio.
Whether you are an individual or a club, tell us about your Field Day plans right here in the Field Day 2012 Forum! Tell us as much as you can, and don't be shy. Use pictures of previous events and/or just describe how much fun you plan on having.

Central Michigan Amateur Radio club is participating in field day this year from the park in Mason, Michigan. We'll have GOTA station, lots of food from various local sponsors, a CW station, VHF station, 6M station, and a couple of HF stations all working off the county's emergency services generator. I'll also have the camper out there plugged into the generator and we'll have hot & cold water, maybe central air conditioning, and a nice lil' hangout for those who are taking a break from the action. We're having VE testing at noon on Saturday, and at least two youth who will be testing for their first ticket. All up, about twelve acres worth of space filled with antennas & stations.

Mount Pleasant, NC. June 23, 2012
Mount Pleasant Cruise-In on Main
This will be the second monthly cruise-in here in town. But there will be a lot more going on around the cruise-in Saturday. The June cruise in will be the same day that Mount Pleasant officially celebrates Independence Day, so there are lots of activities all day long.
It starts out with a parade at 10AM. To participate, just show up at Mt. Pleasant Middle School with any vehicle you're proud of and join in the fun. The route is south on main street from Rt. 49 to Rt. 73, then left on 73 for a block.
East Cabarrus Museum open from 10AM 'til 3PM with free admission. Civil war re-enactors encampment, crafters, and music will also be at the museum.
The library will hold a book sale from 11AM 'til 2PM -- all books from fifty cents to a dollar.
Amusement rides will be running from 2 until after dark. Also street dancing, crafts and vendors.
Music at the main stage starts at 6PM with "Soundbarrier", followed by "Too Much Sylvia" at 8PM.
Fireworks start at 10PM, then an after party with "Too Much Sylvia".
I'm guessing the better idea for cruise-in participants will be to stake out a good parking spot on Main Street after the parade.
Oh yeah, the Cabarrus Amateur Radio Society will hold its annual Field Day participation this weekend eight miles west of Mount Pleasant in Concord.

I was with the JCRAC club in Kansas, I helped with the GOTA station. One of the unlicensed YL's I helped made a contact to Hawaii, I'm not sure which was her biggest thrill, the Hawaiian contact or the fact that someone on the air referred to her as a YL. I told her YL means young lady and she was thrilled!
I see a license in her future.
