^^^ Home sweet home. Sure is a lot easier to setup than the big white house.

^^^ Like last year, we decided on using vertical antennas to minimize our footprint in the crowded park.This turned out not to be the best idea as there was a lot of RF noise this weekend, and the verticals seemed to make it even worse.

^^^ As usual, John, KD7HGS, was our digital operator. He made a lot of contacts in spite of the noise.

^^^ Here's a better view of John's setup: Running aYaesu FT857, MFJ 945 tuner,and ancient WinPSK software. Laptop on the right is the server for scoring software.

^^^ Bob, W7RLS, trying to sort through the clutter of a thousand Hams suddenly transmitting at once. Occording to the clock on top of his "Go Box", the time is 1210 local. Ten minutes into the big event. Chaos on the air...

^^^ Several hours into the event, Craig, KD5ODQ, looks like he's starting to get tired. It ain't easy running QRP in a sea of high power stations hammering away at each other.

^^^ Finally, it's break time. Supper is BBQ pork tenderloin, corn on the cob, cheesy bacon potatoes, and a bunch of other side dishes.

^^^ M-m-m...dutch oven apple pie!

^^^ Overeaters unanimous: L/R Chris Sept, guest / John, KD7HGS / Craig, KD5ODQ / Nancy, KF5WQJ / Bob, W7RLS

It was a great time, with great people. We hope to see all of you next year . 73!

                     Field Day 2021

   Seems like we can't catch a break anymore. Just like last year, someone rented the whole park at our preferred Field Day site, and we had to divert to our second site at Three Island Crossing State Park. Too much shade, too many trees, too many amenities. This place is spoiling us.

   This year we were missing several club members who had other obligations, so we went with just a 10x10 ft pop-up and a 3A designation.
