Field Day 2012

Even though hot, it was pleasant at times on the field day site. A few good helpers and guests came this year and a good time was had by all, with good food to compliment our efforts.

We begin by our leader spraying the grounds with bug deterrent.

And some of us just take his picture!

Next go up living tents....

...and operating tents

6m trailer - get those antennas just right!

the 'potato' gun works well

Others use sling shot and lots of rope

A spot of rest...

And those crazy photographers....

So long to the Field Day site until next year...
