NVQS Members at QRP To The Field - 2001

N1BQ - Single Op Monolith Station - by Mount Mansfield (VT)

  Getting things sorted out. I started using FT-817 w/Z-11 tuner and hand logging Antenna up, a 40 meter dipole on 20 feet of fiberglass tubes. My "monolith" in the background, Mt Mansfield (elev 4398ft)
  The lovely Sara, W1SLR,all bundled up, the sunshine not withstanding, with our two Golden Retrievers, Spenser and Summer. The wind picked up in mid afternoon and dropped the effective temp (wind chill) into the 30's

  I tried several configurations, but misery and performance dictated the final configuration, the K-1, its internal tuner, the Poquet PC to log, and the Bencher. Probably the only time these two settled down, Spenser the wonder mutt (left) later dug a hole by the left rear leg of my chair and I rocked back once too often and went over like a pole-axed bull!
