Amateur Radio field day.  8500 feet up in the rocky mountains, Bob is getting ready for field day.


The multi band inverted v antenna is up.


The temporary ham shack, out in the National Forest is up.


The solar panel is deployed and the battery bank is topped off.

There is no electricity where this amateur radio operator is “Hamming it up” in the remote Rocky Mountain campsite. With only limited generator use, W5TX will operate his radios for the duration of the field day. Here is a look at one of those radios.
