ICARC Field Day
Field Day Photo Album 2006
It was a good Field Day, with a great potluck dinner Saturday night, thanks to the superlative efforts of Jon Poulton, WØCK. We were treated to a downpour, accompanied by lightning and thunder during our dinner. To add to the excitement, the rain softened the ground, allowing in a guy stake to pull out resulting in the 40 meter vertical doing a slow, graceful fall to the ground. Fortunately, it was not damaged and was quickly put up again.
A big "Thank You" to all who participated! Field Day can be a lot of fun, so if you didn't make it out this year, plan for sure to be there next year.

It purrs like a kitten!

Keeping a wary eye on the weather radar! Boy did it rain, but what's
Field Day without challenges from Mother Nature?
