FIELD DAY 2017: On Site: Haney Heritage Park Salmon Arm: Set Up and Operation

The Shuswap Amateur Radio Club has achieved another successful and enjoyable Field Day at Haney Heritage Park.

The bands were not terrific, but enough contacts were made to get a good deal of satisfaction from participating in this annual event.

Antennas included Wayne Harris’s R7 Cushcraft on the trailer performing well on 40 metres. The second antenna was an 80-metre dipole which was tuned to 20-metres at the start of operation on Saturday and saw 80-metre activity later in the day and evening.

Many hands make light work: in addition to the work parties at Peter’s QTH on June 10 and June 14, the following list [in alphabetical order by call sign] at the Haney site on Saturday and Sunday includes all of those who took part in some or all of Set-Up, Operation, and Tear Down: Daryl VA7DBC, Tim VA7TMK, Wayne VA7VT, Al VE7AN, Robin VE7HMN, Celia VE7NIA, Hans VE7OHR, Mike VE7LOG, Phil VE7BPH, Ray VE7RGZ, Ron VE7RLE, Peter VE7RZZ, and Simon VE7SHG.

It was a pleasure to have this level of interest again this year just prior to the club taking a break in July and August from its regular meetings in the Community Room at the Piccadilly Mall.
