Field Day Event.  This is your last bulletin. This year our FD is more 
or less geared on emergency communications.  We invite anyone hams or 
non-hams to visit our FD location.

All area Amateur Radio Operators are being asked to provide EMCOMM for 
the Lafayette Parish Emergency Operation Center. During Hurricane 
Kaboudreaux a tornado hit the downtown Lafayette area causing major 
damage to the EOC.

EVERY antenna that was on the roof of the EOC is down. When the tornado 
took the radio towers down, the towers fell through the roof breaking 
the water pipes for the sprinkler system and flooding the EOC.

Please be at the EOC which is located at the Lafayette Parish Courthouse 
( 200 Main Street )by 8:30 AM sharp. We will be given some tasks to 
perform by the EOC Director Bill Vincent. The task will be performed 
before we setup our personal and the club's radio equipment for Field 
Day 2012. The three tasks will challenge our ability to provide 
Lafayette Parish's EOC critical communication links when all of the 
other systems are down.

*THIS IS A DRILL*

This weekend is Field Day !

Hams will operate their equipment using generators or battery power with the
goal of contacting other hams across the U.S. and its possessions.  Field Day
was designed to test operators' abilities and skills to set up and operate portable
stations for at least a 24 hour uninterrupted period.  This will simulate emergency
conditions such as the loss of electricity, and other normal services that everyone
has come to enjoy and use without even thinking about it.

Good luck to the announced Field Day stations:
