Field Day Vertical

With the longer nights (if not warmer weather yet here in the English Midlands) on the way, many of our thoughts turn towards getting out “in the field” and playing Ham Radio in the great outdoors.

There is always something magical about doing radio in the open air. Perhaps it is a sense of getting “back to nature”, or having to use one’s ingenuity to come up with inventive solutions to the problems of power generation and antennas.

Whatever flavour of playing radio outdoors you may have attempted, you will be aware that things do not always go to plan! :-)

This coming Tuesday at Wythall Radio Club, prepare for Callum M0MCX to dish the dirt on some of the disasters that have befallen him on Field Day events.  Bound to be an amusing and enlightening evening. Tuesday 24th April at 2030 in the Darts Room at Wythall House. See you there!
