How to set up a home-based Field Day station.
The annual ARRL Field Day Emergency Communications Exercise is set for the last full weekend in June. Depending on the outcome of the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, you may not be able to join your club or your friends in the "field" this year. Why not operate (class 1D or 1E) from your home this year?
In this video, Tracy of "Outdoors On The Air" shows us how he prepared for a home Field Day station a few years ago. You could do the same and still enjoy the long distance friendships and competition that this annual event brings without exposing yourself to a viral infection. Here are some of Tracy's comments:
"Can't get out into the "real field" for ham radio Field Day? Maybe you should mount an expedition into your backyard. I'll show how I used to do it. I hope this is an encouragement to those who cannot get out to the field for themselves, but still want a taste of the experience. I ended up with a total of 135 contacts across 40, 20 and 15 meters. Footage was shot in 2014. As always, feel free to leave your comments below."
