The start of Field Day approaches. This is the second of three reports about how PVRC and CARA put together a large auxiliary communications set up and operate for 24 hours. W3AO is the call sign. Using our adaptation from the NATO phonetic alphabet, which would be Whiskey Three Alpha Oscar.
For those CW cognizant, we are:
Dit Dah Dah
Dit Dit Dit Dah Dah
Dah Dah Dah
Let’s start with the team picture. Just before starting out. A few missing as we were still setting up minutes before the start.
Last minute set up still going on at the VHF tent.
We know we are ready when Maurice gets the flags raised at the VHF site.
The Calm Before the Storm. I even got LPL to smile.
And, they’re off. More later after we finish today and clean up.
Come out and visit. We love having the community there, and you can operate the GOTA station. Get On The Air. You can’t miss us. Look for all the antennae in the fields. Triadelphia Ridge Elementary School. Triadelphia Rd. off Rte. 32.
73 de W3AO.
