Winter Field Day Recap 2023

Field Day Crew – John, Debby, Todd, Jesse, and Kris
John and Todd watch Kris get started.
Todd and Debby look on as Kris opens with first contacts of the day.

Many thanks to John and Debby for opening their farm for anyone wishing to set up radio gear. Thanks to Shanna for taking some great pics.

It was a beautiful day, a little breezy and just below 50 degrees F, the sun was plentiful and the skies were clear.

The farm enjoys a great vantage for radio operation and Kris, KO4ZNA, took the opportunity to set up his end fed coupled with an FT-891.

As soon as he powered on his radio, it only took a touch on the dial to start hearing activity.

Todd, KQ4DJI was out on the farm and it was a pleasure to make his acquaintance for the first time. We hope to see Todd at a GARC meeting soon!

For more details and stories from John, Debby, Kris, and Todd, please consider coming to our meeting on this Wednesday, February 1st at 6 pm.

Kris operated way into the dark and for a relatively new ham, he is really flexing his ham radio skills. Kris is a shining example of the enthusiasm ham radio deserves.

Thanks for reading. 73

      Thanks Larry! No worries, I think there is a plan to do Field Day on the 24th and 25th of June. Hopefully we will see you then!
