Pictures from the event:

Our operating site:  A screen tent provided by WA8HEA kept us cool and out of the late summer sun.


A closer view of the operating tent.  The Tin Lizzy Club banner is flying, and we did get a few visitors.


Bill, WA8HEA is on the radio.  Dave, N8HKU, is logging, and Bob, N8JUH, is supervising.


We borrowed John Mathy's generator, which quietly purred away to give us power.


Here was our primary antenna, a Cushcraft R7 vertical for 10-40M.  A G5RV was strung up into the trees later in the day, but band conditions were not favorable for either antenna.

Roger, KD8CSE, brought along his trike.  Here he is operating bicycle mobile on the HF bands!
