   We have lost our Field Day site at Thompson Hill rest area.  Due to a change in State of Minnesota policy we can no longer demonstrate amateur radio at the rest area.  A new Field Day site has been reserved for 214.  We will finalize the use of a parking lot at Spirit Mountain for this and hopefully future years.
