My Field Day battery is charged and ready to roll. My plan at the moment is to operate 1B QRP from the backyard. I’d like to make a hundred CW contacts and one satellite contact - but I know how chaotic the sats are over FD weekend and wouldn’t be disappointed if all my work is terrestrial. #

Bringing food to the Field Day site? Southern Potato Salad is super creamy with a blend of mayonnaise and mustard, hard-boiled eggs, sweet onion, sweet pickle relish, and celery. It’s a potluck must and the only recipe for potato salad you need. #

My IRLP node (4212) has been out of commission for a few weeks. It’s of the PiRLP variety and is a couple years old. It came up lame and wouldn’t boot and I’ve not looked any further into it. I’ve maintained an IRLP node in my home since 2003 and hate to simply walk away from it, but that may well be how it ends. #

The 2018 Baker Island DXpedition team (KH1/KH7Z) departed Pago Pago and anticipate arrival at Baker Island on June 26th. Hopefully they have better luck finding Howland than Amelia did… #
