Ready to leave for another Adventure
It all worked just fine last year...
Tower in position to install antenna
Attaching the three-element 20m beam to the tower
Waiting for 15 people to arrive before attempting to raise the tower
It takes two people on each guy rope and several pushing up from underneath to raise the tower
And now, do it all over again for the second beam and tower
Both towers were up by sunset on Friday evening
Boy Scouts provided five meals during the weekend as a fund-raiser.
Fine dining, Field Day style
Setting up a three element parasitic array for 40m
It's three inverted-V antennas in a row.
Ready for an all-night 40m operation?
The 6m station performed admirably until mid-afternoon when software gremlins appeared on the scene
The VHF station with antennas for 6m and 2m
Raising the antennas doesn't take 15 people. Just push a button.
