2018 Bill Foster Memorial Field Day Update #2

We had a great day today, and here are some more photos from Field Day 2018 at the Central PREOC.

Chuck, VE7PJR works the "bug" on 40M CW.

Quentin (one of our "yutes"!) and Myles, VE7FSR work the pileup, while Chuck, VE7PJR copies the ARRL Bulletin.  Dave, VE7ODS watches on from the back row (Dave was our back-up ears for making sure we got the call signs correct).

Adam, VA7AQD, waits expectantly for confirmation of his QSO on FT8.










TS-480SAT set up as an extra HF station to simulate the need for additional comms during an emergency at the Central Provincial Regional Emergency Operations Centre (PREOC).  This station was hooked up to one of the extra antennas (G5RV) we deployed at the PREOC at Emergency Management BC here in Kamloops.

Close up of Chuck, VE7PJR, working CW with his Vibroplex "bug".  Keeping "old school" alive at Field Day 2018!

The crew (Chuck, Adam, Peter and Myles) using a "falling derrick" to safely raise the tri-band beam into position.
