Field Day 2013

Field Day UPDATE:

Dave Keuchenmeister, N4KD, and I (K7SZ) will be doing Field Day from our side lot in Dacula. As it stands now we will have two K3s as primary and backup stations, a PAR (LNR) End Fed Half Wave (EFHW) and a ZS6 multi-band dipole (think a modified G5RV), and possibly a 20M delta loop or bi-square. Power will be provided by a deep cycle marine battery and augmented (if needed) by several 20Ahr gelled electrolyte batteries. 

As far as a call sign: still up in the air but it will either by N4KD or K7SZ. Listen for us on 20M CW/SSB and 40M CW/SSB. Depending upon propagation we can always come up on the 15M band (near the 21.060 QRP calling freq). 80M has never been a big band for us, so we may come up on 80M CW, we'll just have to see how propagation pans out. 

Hope to work many QRP stations this weekend
