2002 ARRL Field Day
K8JP's truck (with Belize license plates)caught a few more glances than usual on the Indiana highways, as it was LLOADED with more stuff than Joe packs for his annual trip south.
The 60 foot aluminum tower went together well, but we needed the help of a tall tree and WO9Z's XYL at the wheel of her Grand Cherokee to stand it up... not once but twice, as the first time the tri-bander's rotor went all the way around to north ..... and then crapped out.
As it turned out, we had PLENTY of operators, and lots of unlicensed "GOTA" operators, to help the effort along.
Thanks to WO9Z and Jonni for their hospitality on such short notice. -- KJ9C
