It’s been a few years since I have worked Winter Field Day. I’m hoping to work it this year in the mobile at the beach. It’s going to be held this weekend 1/28 and 1/29 from 17:00 UTC to 18:59 UTC on Sunday. 

Planning on working QRP with the KX3, Ham Stick and the LifePO4  battery from Smiths Point Park. The park is a county park on Fire Island near Shirley, NY. 

Look for me on the air sometime after 20:00 UTC on 20 or 40 meters, CW of course.

More info about WFD can be found here: Winter Field Day Info

Monday Morning Quarterback Update:

Worked 1M QRP from the park on Saturday as planned. With limited time, I decided to stay on 40 meters. It was disappointing to only hear a limited number of stations calling WFD. 

Sunday morning fared better while working the event 1H on the 7300. Using the long wire, I made about 50 contacts on 20 and 40 CW before calling it quits. Guess I’ll submit my log for sh$ts and giggles.
