Old Field Day location (2014 to 2019)

The N3SRC Field Day was held at Becky and Elmer Taylor’s “Margaritaville” site, across the street from the Montrose Borough Offices on Cherry Street in Montrose.

Old Field Day location (2013 and earlier)

We used to use the “Old Fairgrounds” in Montrose for our Field Day site. The club believes that the site used in years gone by, was still the best spot.

The Old Fairgrounds is home for the county communications tower among other radio installations and the elevation serves well for radio propagation.

The access road has not in the best of condition, but is passable so members and the public can get to the site without getting stuck in the mud, or derailed by rocks.
