I had the privilege of acting as the Field Day Incident Commander for the Nashua Area Radio Club this year. Field Day is the most important operating event for the Nashua Area Radio Club each year. We operated under our club callsign, N1FD and we were 7A here in New Hampshire, USA. We included some new antennas including a Three Element 40m V-Beam, a Satellite Station, and a 70cm Digital ATV Station in our operation this year. You can see some of the details which went into the planning of our 2016 Operation on our Club’s Tech Night Page.
The video above shows highlights from our 2016 Operation. As you can see, we had a lot of fun this year. Our club has 120+ members and we had a large turnout for Field Day. You can see more about our 2016 Field Day operation on our Field Day Page including photos, a score summary, and a recap presentation shared at a recent club meeting. I hope that you enjoy sharing our memories.

Did you have a chance to try the 40 meter V beam? If so how would you say it performed? Can you post the dimensions for it?

It worked well but it was a lot of work to put up! Took 7+ people most of a day to build.
Hi Mike. If you look at the latest post here on our blog, you find information on the dimensions for our optimized 40m V-Beam.
