New Roof, Same Antenna

We recently had a new roof installed on our home after a thunderstorm drop a load of hail on it. The roof looks great and the roofers made sure to leave the antenna in place and ready for use.

Today was the first chance I'd had to get on the bands in a long while. Jumped on amid some QRM and caught a quick QSO to K8WAW in Maryland. Thanks Bill!

Field Day 2010

Hard to believe, but another Field Day has come and gone. Peyton and I went to Emory this year to visit the guys from the Rains and Hopkins County Ham Clubs.

They set up inside the Rains County EOC building in downtown Emory. Peyton worked nearly half a dozen contacts on 20-meters while we were there.

We had a great time and even got a few ideas for a new home-brew small 20-meter 2-element yagi. Very cool!
