Default Field Day 2010

OK, just wondering who's gonna do FD this year? I'll be doing 10m ssb for our club W1BRS again. Hope the band and the WX is favorable this year. Don't forget to post some photos again this year.

I was hooked into being the club Power Team Captain this year. Got the generators set up, power cords and gasoline cans. Got to get out and help set up antennas, and will operate SSB for 4 hours Sunday. We will be using the club call W5NC and operating 2A STX on SSB and CW. We will also be running a GOTA station, and a VHF/UHF for talk in, and a Satellite station at times.

Default Field Day 2010

Honey, I'm home!

Great Field Day with the Bears of Manchester - W1BRS. We were 9F CT. The WX was great, everyone had a great time and we all ate too much. Oh, we did a little bit of Hammin' too. I got 300 10m contacts using my FT-857D into a di-pole about 30' in the trees and I got 5 1/2 hours of sleep too! Photos to come.
Hope everyone had a good W/E!

Our weather was HOT...97 and 98 degF. Field Day needs to be moved to April.

Bands were generally open, but VERY crowed.

I got in an hour of class 1-D operation here in the parked motor home (from 1-2 Pm Eastern time Sunday between lightening strikes in the area.

I am not really a big time Field Day person.. Though I have fun when I provide power for the club station when I get on the air... I just normally don't do much contesting at all.

I am not a contester either. I will work some for the TQP (Texas QSO Party and Field Day (not really a contest). I enjoy the work of setting up, take down and the friendship of the group. We always manage to have a good time.

Took the girls out Saturday for their first field day experience. They both made a couple of contacts and we spent a couple of hours out. Couldn't be there Sunday (too many things to do at church!).
