Field Day 2014 and Propagation

  I have been listening to 14.300Mhz on the 20 meter band. I heard the Ham Radio Operators mention about someone needing to move to a different frequency. Apparently field day is going on today. Signals tend to be coming in pretty strong, but they had faded out for a short time. This is most likely due to how the sun is acting. I came across this video below and I figured I would share it on my blog. It is a bit lengthy so you may want to get something to drink.


             

   Here is a link to a pdf file for field day from ARRL http://www.arrl.org/files/file/Field-Day/2014/Field%20Day%20Packet%202014%20v2.pdf . Here is another video below on how to prepare for field day. It is getting late in the afternoon here in Rochester New York, but out west it may be 3hours earlier at least depending on how far you are from here. So if you want get out there and have fun.
