Field Day is an annual exercise of our emergency
communications capabilities. The object is to set up amateur
stations (preferably under field conditions) and make as many
contacts as possible within a 24 hour period. JCRAC operated Field Day 2003 at
Stoll Park in Johnson County, KS. This was our first year operating at Stoll
Park - we previously operated at Leawood Park, Heritage Park, and Antioch Park.

Photo 4: Stan (KD0G) provided the vertical trap multiband antenna for the CW station. We also used a wire (not visible in this photo) for the SSB station. According to Bill (KA2FNK), we experienced significant interference between the two HF stations this year, and better grounding is in order for next year!
