LAX_NTS Field Day 2016: CW
— June 25-26, 2016 —
Associated Radio Amateurs of Long Beach
Sharpen your CW skills further for an emergency. Field Day is an excellent opportunity.
I’m looking for a CW operator to team up with me for Field Day. It’s June 24 – 26 this year.
CW speed not an issue.
Each year our club, the Associated Radio Amateurs of Long Beach, has one of the biggest Field Day events in Southern California. We usually operate 5A or 6A (6 simultaneous transmitters) with the call sign of W6RO (temporarily suspended from use on the Queen Mary). We operate from Recreation Park in Long Beach the whole 24 hours. A lot of people stop by. This year a local high school radio club will man one of the stations. Many of us camp out overnight Friday and Saturday. Food is available and a lot of socializing too. Some of us, of course, see it as a contest. (It IS a contest, right?)
The thing is, I’ve been the only CW operator for several years and would like some help operating, setting up on Friday, and tearing down on Sunday. The work is not heavy but I’d like to have some company—and run up a big score! In the past, I’ve made a 40 meter Moxon (2 element wire beam) antenna and a 20 meter Moxon antenna and hoisted them up high between 2 eucalyptus trees (pointed northeast). Works great and the physical antenna separation and the front-to-back ratio keeps the same-band phone station out of my ears (and mine out of theirs). (We have a lot of land to work with at Rec Park.)
If you’re interested and/or would like more information, give me a call.
