2016 ARRL Field Day on Jelm Mountain Wyoming

June 25-26, 2016

Operators: N0TA, KX0R, K0FTC

Location: Jelm Mountain in Wyoming  

SW of Laramie WY near the CO border

County: Albany

Lat/Long: 41N 04' 45"/105W 59' 28"

Grid: DN71

Elevation: about 9,000'

The University of Wyoming's 2.3-meter telescope is located at the Wyoming Infrared Observatory (WIRO) about 25 miles southwest of Laramie, WY on the summit of Jelm Mt. and at an altitude of 9656 ft. (Elev.: 2943 m; Long: 105d 58m 35s.5 west; Lat: 41d 05m 49.4s). This site (469 Jelm Mtn. Road) was chosen because: (1) the dryness of the air, an important consideration for infrared astronomy since moisture strongly absorbs infrared radiation, (2) comparatively low turbulence in the air above the mountain, (3) a dark night sky, (4) close proximity to the University of Wyoming, and (5) pre-existing road, electricity and phone lines since Jelm was formerly used by the US Forest Service and BLM as a fire lookout station.
