2011 ARRL Field Day

07/06/2011 | vo1mrc

Another great FD to mark my 35 years on the air.  We ran 2 QRP rigs from batteries.  The hand-cranked generator worked like a charm for building upper body strenght and our score.  The antennas were a 20m g/p and a tuned doublet for 80-15 metres.  Not much on 10m, but a pleasure to work W1AW on 20 CW.  Thanks to those who reported a chirp from the old Argonaut 509.  Looking forward to tracking it down!  Can't wait till next year.  Thanks to all for pulling our pipsqueak sigs from the QRM and to the ARRL.
