  • Wait a minute, down under Field Day seems to have a totally different vibe than what we do here in the U.S.

    Here in the U.S. we haul all our stuff out into a literal grassy field somewhere, crank up atennas, setup generators and battery arrarys, etc. And work as many contacts as we can on voice, cw, etc.

    The people there all dress like dags. They would stand out like a sore toe at a discotheque.

    Yes, a ‘field day’ has a completely different meaning down here. It’s what Brits would call a ‘rally’ and what Americans would call a ‘hamfest’ or a ‘flea market’. Field Days to me do indeed mean going /P with the club for a portable contest or something, raising antennas, operating radio etc. 73!

    Great to meet you in person. Thanks for the rulers. Good to see that you managed to off load a few items at the field day.

    You really are a very low-frequency bloke! 😉

    You’ve never heard of “Giga-Tronics?” That sounds hard to believe as they are a major RF/ microwave T&M company (RF power meters/sensors, RF signal generators, switches/matrices, etc.), from up north of me in San Ramon, California.



    • Can’t recall any in any lab I’ve ever worked in. And have never been in the market to spec such stuff myself. Yes, I worked for more than decade in an industry that considered 2KHz (yes K) “high frequency”.
