BCRO Field Day 2014 was a "cool" event this year!We met some good participants and employed most radio modes in this field day operation. We were a 3 Alpha station with our club event call sign WX5BC. The setups included CW, a Flex radio, Satellite, VHF SSB and Digital PSK31. We also had some large solar panels to power equipment. Everyone had a great time, learned some new things and we all ate very well! The weather was great and the short rain spell did not bother anyone. Please pull down the PDF attached below to read about the entire event with pictures! If you weren't there, you missed some good ham camaraderie and fellowship! Look forward to Field day 2015! - 73's N5PUV
