2003 ARRL Field Day

09/24/2003 | NS1RA In addition to our regular operating positions, we set up a bonus OSCAR-40 satellite station using a cardboard-box horn antenna from the March 2003 QST. We operated the pass starting Sunday morning and many operators made their very first satellite contacts. One of the operators expressed amazement at how good the conditions were on OSCAR-40 versus how tough things were on HF. Overall, we had a blast! -- AA2TX
