Video of Operating at CARP Field Day 2018

by: Rob Mavis AE6GE

In June, CARP participated in the ARRL Field Day event. One of our member’s spouse recorded this video of me making a few contacts on the HF Phone station. 

As you can tell from the video my voice was not up to contesting strength. This was just a month after having surgery and as a result I temporary vocal chord paralysis. I guess I can still make the contacts with no voice!
