Well, let's just say for argument sake that we held AMSAT field day the weekend 
after ARRL field day. Who would come? You would probably have the satellites 
all to yourself as no one wants to set up all that equipment two weekends in a 
row. No one would want to make arrangements in public parks for two weekends in 
a row and how many club members would help you out or keep you company. 

Good suggestion but I do not think it is feasible.
