N1MM Logging Program

N1MM Logo

We will use N1MM as the official logging program. Be sure that you have it installed and updated before coming to the mountain. Cell phone service up there is at best sketchy. Be sure to print out or save off any of the other instructions you might need also.

To get started with N1MM, go to the N1MM Get Started Page and to configure N1MM, go to the N1MM Configuration Page.

There is room for tents and RVs.

If you plan to bring a trailer or RV we STRONGLY URGE you tour the site before Field Day and take a look. There is not as much maneuvering room and many obstacles such as trees, stumps and rocks. None of those are very forgiving if you hit them.

Camping Reminders:


There will be a number of generators on the mountain. Bring your own if you would like.

If you plan to bring a generator, also think about how to power your station without one. They do have quiet hours at night.

What To Bring To Field Day

Field Day Plan B

In the even that we can't go up on the mountain, we have a Plan B.


RST does not have a formal Plan B. If there are any suggestions for a Plan B for RST, please let us know. Last year the operation moved to the PECOC. Without a Plan B, everyone will be on their own for their Field Day operation. Officially RST will NOT move FD from the mountain to PECOC.


The CRC will move operations to the CRC shack on the plantsite. Unfortunately this is a very limited access facility so the general population will not be able to join with CRC. Also many of the extra points possible on the mountain will not be possible for on the plantsite, i.e., visits from officials and media. An operating schedule will be created should this option look as though it will be necessary.
