2011 ARRL Field Day

I spent most of Field Day with the Sangamon Valley Radio Club in Riverton, Illinois. The best way to describe it overall was wet. It rained lightly on and off while we were setting up. Then just before 1pm local time the lightning and thunder began. People operated on and off as conditions permitted. We did have a good time which is important.

Shelter was plentiful. The school at Riverton where we operate makes the cafeteria, restrooms, etc. available. A few people even operated from inside with cables run out the doors to the temporary antennas. The weather may not have cooperated but it was still a day of fellowship and fun.

There were a lot more club members present, I just didn't get many pictures taken.
