FIELD DAY WEEKEND June 25th and 16th 2011

Another great Field Day weekend has come and gone, fun was had by all. Set up began on Friday afternoon about 5:00 pm and we were all wrapped up about 1:30 pm on Sunday.

Blaine Police Dept. ACS operated in the 2 (two transmitter) class, we were 2A WWA. Station one was in the ACS communications van using the new ICOM IC 7000 and station two was in the hanger using a Drake TR-7, both stations used wire OCF windom or vertical antennas. This was really great training for our operators that normally don’t use the HF bands. Radio condition were better than the last few years and we made more contacts the ever before, along with the great weather was nice too.
