Field Day does not have to be all work.   There is plenty of time to seat a shady spot and enjoy an eye-ball QSO.  (L-R) Mike-WK6O, Larry-K6VDP, and visitor Jim Ford N6JF.

Willie N8WP's motorhome nicely served as the home for the 15M/20M-CW/40M-CW/75M/80M station and the GOTA station. The 5-ele 15M beam can be seen to the left. The 80M dipole can be seen hung between two 40-ft masts to the right. The 40M-CW and 20M-CW frequencies were operated using the 80M dipole with great success. If you click to enlarge the picture, you see FD Chaiman Willie-N8WP (center) talking with two visitors, including ARRL Director Dick-N6AA.
