What are the qualities of a good field day site? Specifically what do you or your clubs look for or use as criteria for site selection?
(Posted as an answer instead of a comment due to size)
In short, the current question ("What are the qualities of a good field day site? ") is unanswerable because:
Objectively, it depends on what the PEOPLE NEED who will be using the site. So really start with some questions:
- How many people does the site need to accommodate?
- What is the climate, and likely weather in the area?
- Do the people intend to operate 24x7?
- Will people need a place to sleep if rotating on/off?
- How many concurrent stations will satisfy the volume of people available to operate?
- Will the people generally be more interested in prioritizing points, the camping experience, the in-person social aspects, the operating aspects, the site setup/tear-down aspects, the publicity and recruitment aspects, the educational and equipment testing aspects, etc?
- What bands do the people intend to operate on?
Based on the answers to these and other questions, a "good" site will have markedly different definitions.
So while not necessarily a purely opinion based question, your team/club/personal definition of "good" needs to be explored and stated because currently there is no shared understanding of it.
