Field Day 2009


Field day is just around the corner, KG4JZM (Andrew) and I are preparing for operations on over the course of 27-28 June. For our field day activity, we are planning to "camp out" in my back yard in Stevensville, MD and run off of "generator power" during field day. We plan to operate as a Class A Non-Club / Emergency Power station operating on generator and battery power.

Station ID: KB3LMC 4A MDC

Our station will be made up of the following;
  1. ICOM IC-735 HF Transciver
  2. Yaseau FT-817 HF/VHF All Mode QRP Transciver
  3. Yaseau VX-150 VHF HT
  4. High Power VHF Rig
Based on ease of operation and points the plan is to operate 2 PSK-31 Stations and 2 FM VHF Voice stations.

Shopping List:
40M Dipole Antenna
PSK-31 Interface for FT-817

Stay tuned for more
