The first shot is the humble abode I used for FD.
The second shot is the manner in which my club filled the water counterweights we use on our tower installations.
The next shot is a picture of one of the 5 towers we set up in a field for the club's FD.
This shot is a picture of the central kiosk section of our FD site.

The epic rain over the weekend prevented me from taking my Nikon out of the case. So unfortunately no photos were taken... Many thanks for the offer to post them…
Over the weekend I visited 18 FD sites in PA & MD traveling 1,265 miles...
What an adventure!

The next set of photos were sent in by Loyd - K8EI...
Loyd participated in the Woodbridge Wireless ARC's Field Day.
The first photo shows all CW antennas on one AB-577.
At the bottom is the Bencher Skyhawk for 20, 15, & 10 meters. Between
it and the driven element of a Cushcraft 2 element 40 meter beam is a homemade
support for an 80 meter turnstile antenna - 5 bands on one AB-577.
There are 8 five foot sections putting the top at 40 feet. The tri-band
beam was fed with a Dunestar HF Triplexer which worked quite well.
The second photo shows the setup of W4RM’s 80, 15, & 10
The 3rd photo shows the SSB A3 tri-bander ready to be
raised to 40 feet.
The 4th photo shows Larry, K0LB, in the foreground and
Terry, WA5NTI, in the background at the digital operating position (Flex
transceiver to the left of the big screen). We ended up in Class 8A with a
claimed score of 15,716 which beats the winning 2014 score of 14,924.
