    Default ARRL Field Day Coming Up

    Hello Everyone,
    Field Day is coming up in just a few short weeks. This year circumstances are a little unusual, but that's no reason to pass it by. Even if it means operating from home, you can still use your portable equipment. I plan to try operating from inside my car with an end fed wire and counterpoise. I found that if I run the front seat all the way forward, I have a huge space in the rear seat. Also planning to do a 3 camera video of the operation. If I don't like the car, I may just go back to operating from a card table on the rear deck.

    Here we go again. ARRL Field Day is coming up this weekend. It's been ten years since I made my Field Day video so I think it's time to do another, although it will not be as long this time.

    Do you know what band/s you will be operating on? I still don't have my General, but can use that small sliver of 10M for my technician class on my ICOM7300.
    The government selectively enforces laws, so I selectively follow them.

    From the ARRL website http://www.arrl.org/field-day#rules
    160, 80, 40, 20, 15, 10 on HF plus 50mhz and up in VHF
    I am equipped to operate 80 through 15, but expect to be mostly on 40 during the day and 50 MHz and up in VHF bands.
