 I just got a link to a Field Day film from back in the day when the W7FR group set up at the gravel pit in  [[ https://​www.youtube.com/​watch?​v=YFnlr-zIx4k&​feature=youtu.be | 1973 ]]  These operations are still wistfully remembered by local DXers - W7VPF is now K7JA and the young lady is Janet KL7MF  both of whom are now running a lot of HRO.  The older fellow in the plaid shirt and cap is the irrepressible W7RM and the guy in the white tee shirt is W7PHO who ran an infamous DX net for many years.. ​ You can see the legendary 4-element 40 meter vertical beam (the fiberglass pole vaulting poles may still be under the deck at my old house on Burton Hill) and the 20 meter monobander that was mounted up on the gravel loading boom out over the salt water. ​ It truly was record-setting at the time and would be hard to beat today. I just got a link to a Field Day film from back in the day when the W7FR group set up at the gravel pit in  [[ https://​www.youtube.com/​watch?​v=YFnlr-zIx4k&​feature=youtu.be | 1973 ]]  These operations are still wistfully remembered by local DXers - W7VPF is now K7JA and the young lady is Janet KL7MF  both of whom are now running a lot of HRO.  The older fellow in the plaid shirt and cap is the irrepressible W7RM and the guy in the white tee shirt is W7PHO who ran an infamous DX net for many years.. ​ You can see the legendary 4-element 40 meter vertical beam (the fiberglass pole vaulting poles may still be under the deck at my old house on Burton Hill) and the 20 meter monobander that was mounted up on the gravel loading boom out over the salt water. ​ It truly was record-setting at the time and would be hard to beat today.
