TCARES Picnic - Saturday, May 9, 2009 - Munger Park, Lafayette
Deploying wire antennas is an art form.
The "Hammer Toss" is not an event reserved just for the olympics.
The proverbial "tune-a-wet-noodle" tuner actually does... and quite well!!
Outbacker 500 and tripod. 6 though 80 meters.
Diamond X50A (2M/440) and military mast tripod - nearly indestructible.
A simple, but effective, HF/VHF/UHF portable station.
"CQ any IOTAs..."
A not-so-simple, but extremely effective HF/VHF/UHF, voice/packet/digital mode portable station.
Many thanks go to Mrs. N9GKE (Kathy), and K9HER (Cheryl)
"No, nothing's wrong. It's supposed to smoke like that. Why do you ask?"
W9DF likes his hot dogs *very* well done!
Picnic dining is also an art form, fit for the olympics. (W9DF, KC9ECL, KC9OXY)
"There's no such thing as too much ketchup!" (KC9MOD)
Time to eat!
"It shouldn't be this difficult to unfold a paper napkin!"
WB9CZC (Dave) with his "special" paper napkin.
The cooks take time to sample the variety of carry-in dishes.
"Sorry, this conversation requires top secret clearance."
"Let's plan to have our next picnic in January."
