Very true, Paul. But still we should maybe decide on which ones to use or perhaps have a variety available to us that we can switch.

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 forgot to list antennas as an item to consider.

I'll bring my 3 bandpass filters also, 40, 30, and 20M. http://wa0itp.com/bpf_bandpass_filters.html

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:
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!
