Field Day Report

Howard G1GBO - 29/06/2022

Field day was, for those who were able to attend, a good day to be out portable. The weather was kind to us, with sunshine all day, if a little breezy. Our only dampener came in the shape of another contest filling the bands with (in David's words) alligator stations (lots of teeth but no ears!). John (EDX) demostrated his Norcal Doublet antenna, mounted on an array of antenna poles that would make GCHQ proud. John worked Sweden, amongst others. David (BWY) sporting a Sotabeams BandHopper worked some of the contest stations across Europe and I worked in to Hungary using an 80-10 EFHW, based on Steve Harvey's antenna whivch you'll find in our article section. All three stations worked with just 5W from FT-817 radios. Thank you to those that visited on the day, maybe next time you can join us.
