I was the GOTA person (N3LYT) for our club and I found that people had a hard time tuning so I fired up my lap top and used the HRD program so they could tune with the computer and a mouse. People seem to know computers certainly better then radios and felt comfortable using it over turning a dial.

Galen,
It was a Flex 5000. You can see it in the video, briefly, and in the still photo on the page, it is the small blue box to the left of the operator.

I was operating at about 50 watts on a dipole. Made contacts across the Eastern US, from Maine to Florida...Ontario Canada and west to Kentucky.

If you watch the video in my OP, you will see what the screen looks like at time code 1:07 (transmitting) and 1:43 (receiving). (BTW I am not shown in the video...I was successful in avoiding the camera.)

Ask not what you can do for Field Day. Ask what Field Day can do for you.
