  1. Well,
    this was my first Field day as a club member.It was a great learning experience for me.
    setting up the antennas and rigging emergency power.
    I got my first experience operating on HF thanks to John Heartney. Made some contacts ,but not near as many as a lot of others. Using his rig helped solidify my my choice of an HF rig. On June 30th I purchased my first one, An Icom 7300. A few days later the power supply arrived. Still working on getting an antenna set up and working.
    I want to thank all of the friendly folks who are helping me along with all of this.
    I think we had a great field day and much thanks to all!
