During the 6/2/2020 business meeting all newly elected officers and directors were installed into their respective positions (click here for a list of the directors and officers).
A lively debate took place concerning what the club felt was the approrpiate to handle Field Day 2020 -- after much thought, about 2/3 of those checked in determined we would feel better holding Field Day at our home QTH, rather than holding it as a group.
The remaining 1/3 was split between holding a modified, yet traditional Field Day, or had no comment at all. Because of the uncertainty of the Covid-19 coronavirus, we determined the best plan of action was to look at the issue one more time during out next regularly scheduled meeting.

Nelson, KA2C, one of the Directors of the ARA, took a lot of time and effort in testing antenna placement, and multiple antenna configurations in order to make this coming Field Day one of the most spectacular in memory. Then, Covid-16 (a novel coronavirus) struck the world! ARRL will still be holding Field Day, but it really depends on quite a few things as to how the Antietam Radio Association will hold their Field Day 2020. In the mean time, Nelson was kind enough to send all of his articles for inclusion on the ARA website. I currently have links that will open the files in a new tab/window, which you can choose to download onto your hard drive for offline viewing. As time permits, I plan on emedding those files into the website, as well as having them as one ZIP file for direct download.
