2017 Field Day wrap up

Field Day 2017 is in the books

June 24th, 25th were a little wet. All things consider, we did pretty good this year. The attendance was down from the last couple of years. We ran 8A again this year. The digital and 20/80 cw stations ran 80-10 endfed antennas this year. We learned a lot about IC-7300 and N3FJP interface to FLDigi. The network was a challenge as always. RF over load on the front end of radios and changing antenna locations.setup 320x200

From year to year we find something different and make changes for the next year. This is what makes it fun and exciting to do. Designing and putting it in to operation. We used facebook and tweets this year.

GARS has exceptional people that makes it all work. This is always a group effect. I want to thank all that gave of their time and equipment to make this event possible for everyone to have FUN. We always eat well and have fun wheather on the radio or sitting around talking about the past field days.
