Field Day 2020

Comments None

It’s Field Day again. During the COVID-19 pandemic.

Yelm Amateur Radio Group had to cancel our club Field Day plans. I had planned to participate from home with my Elecraft KX-2, but last night I discovered that the microphone input is now intermittent after it took a tumble from my desk. I’ve contacted Elecraft to see what I can do about getting it repaired. I suppose this would also be the time to get the reduced harmonic distortion modification performed.

I was planning on using my Buddipole antenna with my new Mastwerks mast, but where it would be safe to set up away from livestock, there are overhead power lines. Where I have a great spot, clear of power lines, trees, etc. the livestock would totally take out the antenna.

Sigh. Maybe next year?
