Field Day June 27th and 28th, 2015

Our ARES group and other club members set up in Riverside Park, Pembroke.


Ron VE3ZRV, Ken VE2HFX and Bob VE3YX loading the trailer at the shed.

Yvonne VE3RYA suggests Rob VA3AGN put the flag at the top of the mast.

Does anyone remember how this stuff goes together?

Ken has found the manual while John VA3LOT trial fits and Yvonne isn't sure anyone knows what they are doing.

Success, now the tarp to shade the computer screen.

Ron, Rick VA3RWH, Ken, Bob and John. It takes 5 people to figure out what to do with all those ropes and COAXs

Make sure Rob's flag is near the top before raising the mast.

It takes 3 1/2 people to raise the mast.

The shelter is up; the mast is up; time to adjust the guys.

The site looks ready to go.

Debra VE3IEH entertains Yvonne with her 2 dogs.

The operating bench with the overnight accommodations in the background.

Ken and Ron hook up the antennas.

Bob finishes the advertising.

Debra brought this great sign from the RCE group.

Does anyone not know who we are?

Ken sets up a 6 meter IC-551 in case the band happens to open.

The VHF/UHF station.

The club's 440 ready to go. (It failed with about an hour to go in the contest!!!)

The laptop runs Squirrl Field Day Logging program.

John VA3IOI signs the attendance sheet that Ken provided.

We got 23 contacts on 80M, 103 on 40, 9 on 20, and 5 on 6 for a total of 140 contacts.
