Next Year’s Field Day Antenna?

posted in: Curiosities | 0

Mike VA3MCX, out and about in Ashburn, ON, found this beautiful antenna he feels we should use for field day 2018. He is worried we might cook a squirrel or two, however, Mike informs me the rules for field day clearly imply bonus points for such an event so long as the animal is put to good use.

Mike did note the difficulties associated with procuring the device, but feels sure the extra contact capabilities should warrant budgeting so long as he can convince Lex VE3LEX to submit the expense as part of the repeater committee’s activities. Let’s hope Laird VE3LKS doesn’t look to closely at the lack of a decimal point near the right of all the zeros.
