Home operation over the internet
Operator position from RF noisy apartment in St Cloud
MFJ Hamsticks mounted under the balcony for the third floor.
Radio equipment at work in Big Lake. G5RV and 4BTV are outside.
I pulled the radio out of the rack and operated MNQP 2014 in person which was a lot of fun.
A bit more fun. Ten-Tec Jupiter to 40 meter horizontal loop at transmitter site.
Note the two radials. They are a 1/4 wave for 20 and 40 meters with the excess loosely rolled up and put into the back of the truck. I believe they have helped overall performance.
Field Day 2013 was mobile in the truck while waiting for the power company to arrive at work after storm damage. I made 19 CW contacts. It was short, but I did enjoy it.
Field Day 2012 was run as 1D.
Field Day 2011 at a camping park just east of St Cloud, MN.
No Field Day 2010 due to moving.

Radio is a Ten-Tec Argonaut 509 with 405 amplifier
Amateur radio is a great hobby. My interests include QRP operating, wire antenna construction and Field Day. My rigs include a Ten-Tec Argonaut 515, Icom IC-703+, Kenwood TS-590s and TS-480sat, TH-F6A and the TM-271A. I like CW and have finally been making CW contacts again. I am working on my speed so that I can have a CW Field Day and make more than one contact for November Sweepstakes.
