Calling all Vintage Sideband Ham Buds;

As you know this weekend is the 2015^th ARRL Field Day.  To honor one of 
ham radio’s remaining pioneers, this weekend we will be operating at Wes 
Schum’s QTH as W9DYV’s Boat Anchor Field Day. Wes singlehandedly brought 
an affordable means for single sideband communications to ham operators 
and we owe him.  W9DYV will be operating on 80-10M beginning Friday 
afternoon, but during the day will likely be on 20M in that area where 
vintage single sideband equipment/operators congregate and chew the rag… 

I have learned from a reliable source that the weather conditions for 
Field Day along the Gulf Coat will be hot and miserable.  However, the 
weather forecaster we at W9DYV recommend you check on frequently may 
have some important announcements that will take some of the toil and 
anguish out of your hot and humid Field Day endeavors.  Be sure to keep 
your carriers nulled, the sideband of your choice amply suppressed and 
the weather gal’s “backscatter” appropriately tuned in:


73 all….
