9 P.M. Saturday night. starting at that side ( ———–>) is KR0k, next in is KD0YRF( inside his trailer are several other hams, just can’t remember them all), Yep,  pansies one  and all, My God – do ya see them there mansions on wheels????  Pathetic. Now last, but much Tougher, is me and mine ( Dam! i look so poor next to them critters, lol).  Those are my three youngest sons. Russel ( working on his lic.), Raven( got his license at like 12 or 13, something like that, and Mason ( 9 years old, my youngest).  The antenna is my 6 meter loop at 30 feet. I only ran one station and was skunked. I knew running a 6 meter station was iffy, but what the hell. Tried anyways.

My blazer, 2001 4.3 liter 4×4 runs great. Pulling a slightly bigger then 4×7 trailer. Everything fits, From the 3000 watt gennie, inverter, charger, cords and assorted paraphernalia  of gas generated electricity to the tents and camping and living gear to the  ham gear! not to mention all the tools shovels, sledges, etc to set up. plus support for the kids and my  Ipads, androids and phones, network and computers.. No rain fly on the tent cuz it was still 90 degrees and 90 percent humidity.  and if ya look at the table close ya can see my Icom 746 and such. I also had a vhf rig to monitor the local repeater( 146.790, the good ol’79. cover several counties), also a TYT DMR  hand held and a scanner.IMGP0605

 

4 A.M.   As you can see the tables are empty. I packed it all into the trailer at  about 11:30 that night, cuz I knew it was going to be a wet morn, I was right. The fog didn’t burn off till 8 or so in the morning on Sunday. IMGP0646
