With just over a week to Wireless Field Day 5 I wanted to say thank you to Stephen Foskett (@sfoskett) and the Wireless Field Day crew. I was so honored when asked about attending Wireless Field Day 5 and have been totally impressed with the planning, communication, and organization of the event. Stephen and crew have worked hard to plan so many of the details I feel my only responsibility is making the flight and bringing some extra clothes!
To increase my excitement for WFD5 I have checked out blog posts from past WFD attendees and they really paint a picture of the events being nothing short of excellent with great people coming together to share their technical knowledge.
I have never personally met the other delegates, but have run across or had conversations with most if not all of them through social media. I do consider the other delegates the “rock stars” of the wireless world and really look forward to meeting them and talking wireless, but mostly learning as much as I can cram into my memory!
Stephen and crew have also set up a great lineup of vendor presentations and since I first saw the lineup 2 or 3 more vendors were added, and at last glance there are 9 vendors presenting at the conference!
Between rubbing elbows with the other delegates and seeing the vendor presentations I will be on information overload and I wish I could stick a USB drive in my ear to help bring home the material and knowledge I’m sure to learn.
Thanks to Stephen, the WFD5 crew, the other delegates, and the vendors! Being a Wireless Field Day newbie everyone has been tremendous and made me feel welcome and already part of the Wireless Field Day family!
Thank You! Dale
