Bob Hajdak (N8QE) wraps up this 8 part series on the ARRL Field Day with one of the best reasons to join your fellow radio amateurs "in the field"--"It's blast!"  Granted, Field Day is supposed to be a test of our emergency communications preparedness, and it is for the most part. But there's nothing in the ARRL Field Day rules that outlaws fun, friendship, and, occasionally, excellent food prepared over a campfire or portable butane stove.  Even if you can't join a club in the field, take your station outside, erect a temporary antenna, position your solar panels, hook up a deep cycle marine battery, and get ready for a radio adventure. Enjoy the upcoming ARRL Field Day!

Thanks to DXEngineering for an enjoyable and enlightening video series on Field Day.
