HRCC Campout 2023

As a patron of HRCC, I was invited to their campout in the Ramona area.  We had an awesome time with all things ham radio.  Josh KI6NAZ had a very tall mast with a VHF antenna on top and EFHW stretched out; he also setup a Buddihex.  Adam K6ARK was trying out a 6m yagi that was very cool.  I was trying out a new Kelty Backcountry tarp off the back of my Jeep and operating my the FT-817 with a Wolf River coil.  I made a couple FT8 contacts but wasn't having much success otherwise.  It was pretty hot and dusty but all great time was had by all!
