Go Kit picnic fun and a learning experience

August 6th saw nine of our members get together to review each other's Go Kits and have a lunch from the grill. The problem we all face, according to attendees, is the same: what to bring and how to organize the radio, power source, and antenna. But, the solutions were as varied as the members. We observed a station in a comm van, a station in a trailer (and one member made a contact with the Red Wing Special Event Station), equipment in a back pack, in a rolling back pack, in a tote with organizational materials, and in a pelican case. Antennas were also varied. Pictures will be posted shortly on our dot "net" site. Thanks to all who were able to attend.
