FYBO (Freeze Your Butt Off) QRP Contest - February 1, 2014

N9AW  -  NK9G  -  W9LR at Valley View Park, New Berlin, Wisconsin

Its been a long rough winter this year and FYBO was no exception.  It was 17 F degrees when we started and not much better when we finished that afternoon.  I worked on a Buddipole beam which I was dying to try out.  The boom is homebrewed using a painter's pole and dowel and the feedpoint and elements is Buddipole.  When I put this up it was snowing like crazy.  The driven element partially rotated on the boom as I found out (a fix is in place for that) but the 2 element 10 meter yagi toward the front of the vehicle performed quite well.  Band conditions that day were not very good though.  On the back of the van is a hitch mounted holder with a 8 ft. BP mast.  The antennas are a dual band Versatee vertical, one for 20 meters and another for 15 meters each with their own counterpoise.  

 This was a parking lot we were in so no where to really stake down a counterpoise, hence, the beautiful Wisconsin counterpoise holder. Seems appropriate with all of the snow.
