GNARC portable operation from CT MA RI border!
On June 10th, 2017, KC1YL, W1PPL and WB2JVB traveled to the CT/MA/RI tri-point, where all states meet. This is near Thompson, CT and is at 700′ elevation. It was about a 1.5 mile hike into the woods up the mountain. Radio was an Icom IC-706 MkIIG into a Buddipole at 20′. Power supply was a Bioenno Lithium Iron Phosphate 15Ah battery. Picnic lunch was also enjoyed.
Over 50 contacts were made on 20m, including Alaska and several in California. Lots of midwest contacts as well.
Tons of fun, other than the millions of caterpillars that were everywhere! If you have ideas for a portable op, let Lisa know!
