|2011-08-04||2011-08-04||KD4QIT||On August 4th with the trailer loaded with what was needed I set off for New Point Comfort Lighthouse in Matthews County Va!!. I had planned a radio activation of the lighthouse an with me were Dan W4DPL, Scott AE4TC and Charles KK4AIO. We got there by 8:30am got everything setup and was opearting by 9:30am and we worked stations until 3pm. We had issues to arise the tide came in so the water levels under vehicles got a little high which made things a little tricky we had to move the generator a few times to keep it out of the water !!!. It was a muggy day but the sun was not out in full force so the fans in the trailer made it bearable we operated 20meter psk31 ,20 meter SSB ,30 meter psk31 and were not to successful on 15 and 40 but had a blast and we made over 50 contacts during the event !! All qsl's will be uploaded to eqsl and lotw to cut back on the postage costs had a great time but forgot to take pictures and to install the matching element on the 15 meter beam so that antenna did not work well didn't even think about the element until i got home and was putting everything away .|
