Ok, so I went out to Field Day 2006 (Last full weekend in June) for Saturday evening, we didn’t have the stuff ready to camp out all night.
It was a fun day, including:
- trying to find (dad’s) car keys in the grass for hours, to find them sitting in the lawnchair’s cupholder
- getting lots of QSOs just as I sat down
- an evening of mosquitos, chit-chat, QSOs
We finished the night by hitting a satellite repeater on my handy-talkie with Matthew, VA3MHB’s hand-held Yagi antenna. It was a team effort trying to hold everything together and point the yagi at the right spot, and although we didn’t make a contact, we did hear ourselves on the satellite downlink.
