There has been some solid contest operating from our station!  This is great, because the more we operate, the better chance we have to chase down the bombastic noise that crippled Field Day last year. Fortunately, we haven’t heard any reports of the monster noise this year- that’s a great thing! We should tell you that Larry, N9AUG, has experienced significant problems remotely operating his Yaesu 5000.  Despite George’s yeoman service in programming the access, it appears that perhaps the ~really~ limited Internet may be a culprit that we can’t overcome.  So Larry has transported his excellent rig back home.  Join us in thanking Larry for everything he’s done for out station!  We still have the other Yaesu rig which is an excellent radio for any purpose!  There are several alternatives- we are working now to get the best rig to fill in that open slot. Currently we have an Icom 745 and the Drake gear that are available for use. Stay tuned!
