W9AZ Field Day
The Kankakee Area Radio Society
operated W9AZ (4A - IL)
Day 2002 weekend was
June 22-23, 2002
out the photo pages below of Field Day.
Like Bob always says about Field Day,
"It's a wonderful thing!"
Shown above from L-R are Larry K9JLK, Don K9NR, Francis KE9MG, Crystal W9IOU, Will K9FO, Howard AK9F, Steve Dybedock (visitor), Bob N9MBR and Chip K9IOC.
This was certainly a highlight of our FD operation. Howard AK9F purchased a potato cannon or "spud gun" at Dayton HamVention this year hoping to shorten the time required to hang the wire antennas here at our FD site. It turned out to be a major hit! There must have been 30 lbs of spuds launched over the course of the weekend.
Chip K9IOC shown here firing the potato cannon. This contraption works surprisingly well. Wire antennas in high trees will "never" be a problem again!
We must caution you
that this is not a toy and
should "ONLY" be operated by an adult
with the understanding that this can be
dangerous if used improperly!
2002 FD Chairman, Bob N9MBR
has put together another very successful
Field Day weekend for the KARS organization!
