We have had horrible cooperation from the weather for the first 3 events and our on the air time has been limited so the club decided to change the qualification for the certificate. Now you only need to QSL 5 of 7 of the Special Events to get the clean scoop certificate !!

Good Luck and 73 from SEKARC

Field Day Trial Run

Testing two things today. My field day portable set up and posting a piece from my Android phone.

On the radio side... set up is good! Figured out a way to improve my SWR on my fishing pole vertical by straightening out the ground radials instead of letting them just lay on the ground! The copper j - pole is in a tree hanging up about 20 feet and getting me to 4 area repeaters.

Made 2 contacts on my porch... one using 50 watts ssb... W1AW/portable in Montana! The other using 20 watts PSK31 to Tennessee K4CMC! I was also able to check in to the national SATERN net on 14.265!

I think our station is ready to deploy on Field Day! The jury is still out on this mobile posting though... stay tuned!

PS: Other than some format issues the mobile post worked pretty good.....
