Currently, we have three 40m AM (A3E) QRPs fully assembled and ready for demonstration. But that is not all — another 10 kits are in the final stages of preparation. One of the three kits will be taken apart and re-assembled on-site during the Field Day, offering a hands-on learning experience for home-brew enthusiasts. These kits will be provided free of charge to Field Day participants who craft their own rigs at the venue itself with expert guidance from our mentors.

One suggestion is that new and dormant Hams should be assisted to "Get On The Air". (GOTA)

Actually, a Field Day is a Simulated Emergency Training program, aimed at providing the necessary knowledge and experience in getting ready to operate in a short while in an emergency situation, with available resources. That is what we also are aiming at to the extent possible.

We could devote the first 24 hours to witness first-hand and take part in the creation of ham software, hardware and antenna and load them up during the second 24 hours to observe the performance. And also learn good operating practices by observing the nuances of the good operators manning the stations.

We are looking into the possibility of having live home-brewing sessions of rigs, antennae, etc. with the help of mentors and elmers. The idea is to have something for everybody who is participating.
