Chas, As you do,  lots of us operate from the lake and parks.  Most have their favorite antennas already in the bag along with some telescoping poles.... I would have to count mine but I am sure there are at least 3 in my go bag. cul happy Holidays de Paul

I'll bring my 3 bandpass filters also, 40, 30, and 20M.
I love this radio stuff.

I am sure Les will operate SSB as his code is rocky at best..... I need to work with him some more. I intend to order the SOTA band pass filters and after build up will give them a try to see how they work. I will order in January. The SOTA filters are 3 bands on a board. in one enclosure. I did order a 40 meter band pass filter and it works good but I need to get an 80 meter for Richards setup for in the evenings.
Ill ride along and see what comes up. I suspect we can work 80, 40 and 20 meters but would not count on the higher bands unless the prop gods start smiling de Paul

Field Day update:

So far, I have the following people who are planning to attend:

Bert, NØYJ
Chas NK8O
Johnny ACØBQ
Richard WM6L

Our “to do” list:

  • Make park reservation 
  • Decide on # of radios 
  • Decide which bands to operate 
  • Decide which modes to operate 
  • Choose logging method 

I’m open for input and comments on any of these, and of course more operators are welcome!
