Field Day 2019 Was A Great Success!

First we will start with the testers. We have two new Techs, Diane KN4VIH and Bob KN4VII Sanchez. No need to hunt for a background for this picture. Field Day is the perfect local to mark the occasion.

From left to right we have VE Coordinator Peggy N4PEG, new Tech Diane KN4VIH,

I would like to thank Kevin for the dramatic image above, all the aerial images, and many of the people pictures in our album. I would also like to thank Don,Rich and others who also contributed photos. There is a lot of photographic talent out there.  

This was a year of firsts.  For starters we were fortunate to have a reporter from the Ledger interview one of our youngest hams. Liam did an outstanding job. Also a first, we had a real power outage when a limb from a tree fell on the power lines feeding the building. We went dark, but the generator kept us on the air. How realistic is that! Another first was a second power failure, when our main generator went out. Not a problem though. Backups were quickly put into service, and we were off and running again. Yet another first was the food. Instead of the usual dogs and burgers we feasted on Jimbo’s pulled pork and chicken, in addition to the dishes brought in to pass. Finally, there was something else very special this year. Several hams new to the hobby were exposed to a wealth of information relating to antennas and operations, and most important, given the opportunity to get some on the air, experience. This was a good thing.  

Field day is a lot of fun, but it also involves a lot of hard work. Setup, tear down, and cleanup went smoothly. Patrick and Kevin did a fine job getting and serving the food. From all appearances, operations went well. Antennas were up and ready well in advance thanks to Rich, Bill Busbin, and of course Fred. On behalf of Matthew, and all the board members I thank all who put the extra effort into making this event the success it was. Pat yourselves on the back. You deserve it. 🙂
