Mobile installation.
Icom 703+ has been replaced with the Kenwood TS-480s freeing the 703 for portable use this summer. Note the two radials. They are either a 1/4 wave for 15 and 20 or 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.

I am hoping that Field Day 2013 will be CW only.
Field Day 2012 was run as 1D.

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.
