>> Our first Contractor's Point Field Day we used Ken Beal's yagis on SSB. We learned that while Drake R4A/T4X stations worked pretty well on generators, Matt's Heath twins had troubles both with generators and RF blocking due to wider front end filters. Bill Guimont brought a KWM2 that was used for our largest ever 75 M contact total with a nice quad loop antenna. We came back to Contractors point once at which time we destroyed Tree's 204BA.
