Except for the cold wind, it was a great location. Even though it was a sunny day, the wind chill really made it uncomfortable after an hour.

David Mackenzie, KI5GYE joined us also with his set up. He was trying to work sideband and this was his first field day. His radio set up was very efficient but he had antenna issues.
