Field Day 2005

This year we were at the Hawaiian Acres Community center.

Ken Brown N6KB was Field Day chairman for the second year in a row, hopefully will do it again in 2006. His dedication and effort have made our Field Day a great success.

For 2005, we had a two transmitter site, 100 watt maximum running on alternate (generator) power, placing us in the 2A class.

The SSB station was a Kenwood .... and the CW station was a ... We also made a few contacts on 2 meters, but it wasn't manned much of the time.
