Ham Radio Field Day-Rain and a very tall vertical. Post 1702.

Although the ARRL Field Day Communications Exercise is set for the last full weekend in June, it's not too early to think about your portable station for this annual event. 

In this video, Tracy ("Outdoors On The Air") shows us his Field Day station, complete with a 50-ft/15.24 meters vertical.  Field Day always brings the unexpected, such as foul weather, insect pests, and power issues.  In this video, Tracy comes prepared for the elements and manages some excellent contacts with his QRP (low power) set up.  A nicely done video from a fellow ham who enjoys both the outdoors and amateur radio.  Prepare now for this interesting and often challenging communications event.
