Field Day 2004
Lynn Adair won the grand prize at Field Day this year. Maybe her OM Mark Conklin - N7XYO will be able to talk her into getting her amateur radio license now.
Ben Joplin - WB5VST getting laptop computers ready for Field Day logging. Ben loaned the club these PC's for the contest.
|Getting contest contacts started was Robert Coughlin - KE5BGX and Joe Gorkos - N5TEX. Robert Morris - W5WSS (standing) helping out.|
WOW! WHAT A LOT OF FUN AT FIELD DAY!
A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL THE MEMBERS
The annual TRO Picnic was great. There were hamburgers, hot dogs, potato salad, baked beans, fruit, cookies and other things that I'm sure I'm not remembering. Thank You, Thank You, Thank you, to those that made the feast what it was. Your club President, Mark Conklin - N7XYO made sure we had the main menu there along with bottled water and soft drinks. If you know who did what of the different tasks of making Field Day the success it was, please forward some info to your webmaster to add to this report. firstname.lastname@example.org
operations were a hit again and Joe Gorkos - N5TEX organized the
assembly of an all band dipole suspended in air by helium
balloons. What a site. He did this at the Field Day
of 2001 also. It not only works well (when you use a good
antenna tuner), it is a great attention draw for the hobby.
The HF rig used with this antenna was loaned for Field Day by
Joe - N5TEX. The rig is a Yeasu FT8000 (I think).
again to everyone that took part in the 2004 ARRL Field Day, I
certainly enjoyed myself.
