Field Day 2011

Field day 2011 was another good outing. We had quite a few show up, many visitors and many stayed the entire time. We basically had one station setup and between 20 meters, 15 meters and 10 meters we made 34 contacts over about a 5-6 hour period. We even operated in the rain.
We had a pretty good potluck after the operating. One thing for sure it wasn't as hot as it was last year.

Everyone seemed to have a good time and I believe we might even have a bigger outing in 2012 - who knows??

Here we've stuck my granddaughter Madison up a tree to hang my home-made Windom antenna.

Something out there must be very interesting. Again this year I brought out the trusty Icom IC-745. The Windom worked GREAT!

While I was slaving away at the radio (me in the background) this is what most of the visitors were doing! Hi, hi!
