Field Day wrapup

WOW, what a georgeous weekend for FieldDay this year.  It's been years since we've had weather this good.IMG_0489.JPG

While Friday was a bit on the cloudy side that made it perfect for putting up antenna's.  Richard (n7rig), Tor (ae7ev), Curt (we7u) and I (n7ipb) put up Richards new HF vertical, the forty foot mast for the dipoles and the operations tent.

Considering it was only the four of us (and Richard left early to attend n0fpf's wedding open house) we did pretty well.

Then it was off for beer and food at the Skagit River Brewery.

It's Field Day time again

Once again the WETNET gang will be participating in  ARRL Field Day from the QTH of N7RIG in the beautiful Skagit valley.

Tlhis year, unlike years past we're not doing a special antenna project nor are we putting up one of our previous big antenna's.  No Bruce array,  no 20M rhombic.

Instead we'll be keeping it simple. 

  • One Titan-DX multi-band vertical (destined to eventually become N7RIG's permanent HF antenna)
  • One 160/80/40 dipole and G5RV on a single mast
  • One 6-meter quad.
