We erected two mast systems which supported multiple antennas.

Unless I am mistaken, we used three different versions of the MyAntennas, EndFed half wave antenna as an inverted V, horizontal and a slight sloper to make many of our contacts. Steven’s 15/20 meter dipole made up most of the rest of the contacts with Dave’s Scorpion screwdriver handling the digital work.

Although I didn’t make a huge number of contacts due to the number of other activities at the event, I was able to make contacts on 80 meters for the first time. The noise floor on that band was tremendous.
A special thanks to Hector, Larry and Steven for their support in getting the newer Hams on the air, some for the first time.

Re: 2019 Field Day. What you are missing.

Let’s take a break from the food.

Field Day Set Up

Our Ham Shack was placed amongst a tall stand of Pines. Perfect for erecting many antennas.

Steven with his pneumatically propelled, manually activated, antenna hanging device. I think he works for a company called “Acme”! Note the Ham Shack in the background.

Actually, his device worked like a champ with more than enough power to clear the highest branches and the accuracy to “Stick” the landing. Version 3.1 coming in early 2020.

Lunches were provided by Jeff and Brenda(not pictured) lettuce wrapped chicken and tuna salad with home grown produce. Bruce baked his own bread on-site in his solar oven and supplied us with great sandwiches.

I had some time to my self when I arrived. I spent it laying on a picnic bench, under a large pine tree, listening to the wind. This place is amazing. Then Dave shows up in his Hummer and I think he started practicing his three point turns.
