Field Day 2016. Post #1135.

Here's another great Field Day Setup, courtesy of Tracy (VE3TWM) and Randy (VE3OZR).  This QRP operating "camp" was erected in Rattlesnake Park, Ontario, Canada and used two antennas, a Yaesu 817 HF transceiver, and some excellent outdoor shelters.  According to Tracy (VE3TWM), the horizontally polarized antenna was a 66-foot/20.12 meters long HyEndFed 4 band HF antenna, while the vertically polarized antenna was the EZ Military Antenna from Alpha Antennas.  As you can tell from this short video, both Randy and Terry had a great time grabbing elusive Field Day contacts from this beautiful park.  Hopefully, this well-organized portable station will give you some good ideas for your Field Day operation.
