HF in the Park, April 12, 2014
HF in the Park Website
We had great attendance with around 37 Hams and guests showing up
Setup was near the parking lot
So simple a “child” could assemble it
Perhaps there were too many “supervisors”?
Tailgating - Amateur Radio style
The “business end” of a Buddipole portable antenna
An attractive addition to the park!
But don’t forget about the antenna before driving away!
Now that’s a real portable HF antenna
Now it just needs to be connected to something - which took way longer than it should have, but the antenna did work nice once it was up (102’ flat top fed by 450 ladderline about 40’ up)
Ralph, N0AWN, to the rescue helping Chris (K9EQ) and Brian (N0KBL) get the line up into the trees.
What we have here is your basic monofilament line-eating tree!
Give me my line back! Ralph can figure out how anything works!
Mike, AD0CZ, working the “bird” (name corrected)
Al, KD0KJI, operating the KX3 into a magnetic loop
Until next month…..
Thanks to N2PSR for the photographs and K0ORK, the main troublemaker
