Good evening and Happy Field Day weekend to everyone on the net. We survived!
The club was very busy this weekend; Friday we had 15 at dinner and 27 at our club meeting. We had a couple guests including Claire KE0MVO and Louise from Gunnison as well as Virgil who is interested in getting his license.
Dave Casler KE0OG surprised us by giving away a couple items, apologies in advance if I get this wrong, a DMR digital 2 way radio and Bencher keyer. Thanks Dave!
Our program was on “Free Phone Service” for ham operators. If you were unable to attend or would like the information mentioned please email Stan at Stan@W0LQ.com.
Also Steve KI0KY and Royce AA0JD went over last minute info for Field Day.
What a Field Day it was! The long timers all agree they don’t ever remember a Field Day quite like this one; sunny, then lighting, rain, windy and even hail, was the order of the day and night. It definitely kept us on our toes; as we had to disconnect antennas a couple times, however in spite of all the craziness we still managed to do pretty well with contacts. Royce will probably share during personal comments. I met Sharon KE0NTZ who came out for her first field day and Harry, (I didn’t get his call) came out from Hotchkiss and Chris, (KE0SED) and his 3 daughters, from Montrose were a huge help.
I want to say Thank You to everyone that braved the conditions and came out, your help was greatly appreciated!
That’s all for now, KK6RNV back to net control.
