The A3 and 2M yagi antennas used during Field Day were made available due to the generosity of NP2N/George and facility caretaker Chuck/WA0ROI.

A special “Thank You” to Lisa and Tina who prepared all the meals and kept us all going throughout the 2 days.

As you can see in the pictures, we were able to use the VITEMA bus as our HF operations center. Thanks to VITEMA Director Barnes, Deputy Director Lewis, and Mr. Garry Green for all their assistance.

For everyone who missed Field Day, we are preparing our After Action Review to have an even better Field Day next year. Hope you can join us, even for just a few hours, and bring a friend.
