This month’s subject was talking through some of the issues for the upcoming ARRL Field Day. Tom has built Yagis for 10 and 15 meters. Early testing looks good. The current thought is to use mono-band Yagi antennas, on two separate towers for field day contacts.
Maui Electric has donated some older laptop computers that we may be able to use in logging field day contacts.
