We’re using home built antennas for all the HF bands. We’re using Belden 9913 feed line for the 20m/15m/10m yagi, 40 meter beam, 6m yagi, and using 450 ohm ladder line for the 80/15/10 meter dipole. The antennas are made from 13 AWG copper Poly-STEALTH™ high strength aerial wire.

We are implementing a complete ICS format for this years field day. The ICS uses a standard hierarchy that can grow, shrink, and adapt to various size events and positions. This is the 2016 ICS Chart.

2 meter propagation map

144.200 MHz propagation assuming 100′ TX antenna height and a 20′ RX antenna height.

We are holding a license test session during field day, planned for Saturday 5 pm.
