Winter Field Day
1) I'll be running on battery power
2) I'll have a tent
3) I'll be operating primarily voice and digital modes
We did just get a record snowfall for our area this weekend - a couple feet, so unless it gets crazy warm this week there will probably still be some snow on the ground for me to deal with. Because I have a brand new son (only 2 weeks old!) my outdoor operation is going to be in my backyard, so that my YL can summon me in to help with baby stuff if needed. Since I will be operating from my backyard, I did take one liberty today while I was shoveling - I cleared the spot where I am planning on pitching my tent, next to the fire pit at the back of my yard.
At this point I can only guess what my neighbors must have thought....."Why on earth is he shoveling in his back yard?!"
