Field Day 2006

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.
