This June 28-29, 2014 was my first ARRL Field Day. I was elmered by the best: my father K8VEB in a small field on my property. We were on-the-air from 2pm to 6am and weathered a thunderstorm... it was FUN & I finally got my feet wet on HF.
We used a G5RV and a slinky antenna with center feed on a 25' aluminum flagpole. We went at a relaxed pace and made 119 contacts. We used N3FJP's ARRL Field Day Contest Log for logging.
