K7EAR Station for EAARS Field Day June 2003

Welcome to the EAARS Field Day photo page. This year we were able to once again hold our field day exercise on the mountain. Our location was the Clark Peak campground, approx 1/2 miles west of Riggs Lake turn off. The elevation here is approximately 9000 ft amsl. The days were warm, and nights cool. We operated class 3A, using QRP 5 watts. Our power for the radios was supplied by solar power charging several deep cycle batteries. We utilized 4 K2 transceivers. We had 3 40ft towers supporting 3 element tribanders. We also operated a GOTA station for new comers to the hobby. Enjoy the photos, courtesy of Milt, N5IA. EAARS would like to thank everyone that participated in this exercise. A special thank you to Grace KB7CSE for her thoughtfulness in providing cooked meals.

Field Day Results, FINAL SCORE. We were Number 9 Nationwide. Congratulations.  Lets make it a real challenge for 2004. See you all there
