2016 Summer VHF UHF Field Day

Snapshot-1-9-01-2016-6-58-PM

Well this was my second attempt at participating in this contest and I must confess that I am not a fan.   Made only 2 local contacts in about 2 hours on 2M.  While I was not expecting a pile up I did expect more activity.  I was using a 10el Yagi on 2m and a dipole on 6m.  Even with the Yagi I could not hear anything beyond a couple of local stations.  Perhaps more patience is needed.  Perhaps I need to try tagging along with more experienced operators.  I’ll see what happens next contest.  I made a short video (as seems the be the case every time I do something these days !)
