locked Field Day 2019.


Cray / K5MUG
 

Hello All,

 

I’ll be operating FD this weekend as K5MUG, Class 1e, Section STX, from my patio at home, I plan most of Saturday and Sunday (or as long as I can hold out).  I’ll be concentrating on 40m/20m with solar power to my Elecraft Kx3 at Qrp/5w CW into a N/S oriented dipole on a push-up pole at 31 feet.  Based on practice runs last week and so far this week with 5w and my home antenna (dipole at 40ft) it’ll be a challenge but I’m looking forward to making it happen and just counting up when it’s over, fun times!

 

Good luck and 73,

Dear Cray K5MUG,

 

It will be hot so being close to home may be a good move.

 

I will be on phone, probably 20M, so I am not likely to contact you if you are on CW.

 

You should come by at 6 pm for the BBQ supper.

 

Sincerely,

 

Harold

Thanks, Harold. just may do that.  Been very busy getting my solar power set up and tested along with building and setting up a new antenna for this FD.  Plan to finish the build and get it tuned tomorrow so it’s ready to do the formal install on Saturday morning.  Last minute fun!

 

Take care, GL, and 73
