ACTION IN THE SHELTER:
Here's the big
shelter, where the cooking, eating, visiting, phone operating, packet and
APRES operating took place. As you can imagine, it was the center
of activity with all the picnic tables and piles of twinkies plus tubs
of cool drinks. At the left is the rotatable dipole, which was on
a couple sections of tower, anchored to a massive steel structure which
was originally planned to be a dock for the pond which is to the right.
The six meter beam is just to the right of the shelter in this picture,
and used an "Armstrong" brand of rotator. There were several openings
on six meters, with stations worked as far away as California and Colorado.

Not only does Rick turn out as many meals as anyone will stay for and eat,
he works through the night on the phone station dredging up contacts for
the Field Day operation. No wonder our Field Day participation increases
year after year!
