Operating Position Overview

This was the clubs 1st Field Day and it was great.  Mike N3ZHA got us a great location and did all the work of arranging the loan of the county generator and the use of the facility at Bloomfield Farm Park in Centreville MD.  Fri evening some of the set up was done.  Several antennas were managed, 3 wire antennas were hung from trees using a bow and arrow and a fishing reel to handle the 'carrier' line.  An OCF 150' ft windom, a sloper set up for 40/20M and an end fed 'L' supported by a tripod and a tree.
Not in the photos were George Drake K3NQA who came to help set up and take down between operating with the Kent Co. Club.  Vickie KB3QLW who did the catering and did a great job, none of use will forget the chicken BBQ on Sat Nite.  There was lots of great food.
