Address of SA Field Day Site - update

Lee Besing

Drove by the actual facility in person on Monday evening. The big
sign in front verified as saying 300 S. Callaghan Rd, although street
sign at next intersection says "SW Callaghan Rd",

I also observed / verified the existence of a 6' wrought iron fence
surrounding the premises, so the grassy area "behind" the designated
10/75 meter station location has a fence between the grassy area and
the gravel / paved area where the RV will be parked. Perhaps
permission has been obtained (or will be obtained) to allow us to run
coax feeds thru the fence and set up the NVIS, or other antennas
needing to be staked down, out in the grassy area?

Hmm, wonder if that fence could be loaded up for 75/80 or 160
meters? Just kidding.

Google disagrees with the address of "300 S. Callaghan Rd." Google
Maps says that it ought to be around 200 block of S. Callaghan Rd
instead. Here is a street level traffic shot of the Academy using
the 232 S. Callaghan Road address.


But the official SA City Website says the address truly is 300 S.
Callaghan Road...

Some folks were asking tonight what the physical address of the
Field Day Site was, so they could program it into their GPS
units... Here is the official address of the Fire Fighter's
Training Academy, as listed with ARRL's Field Day Site registration.
