Field Day 2002

June 22-23, 2002
Typically, our Field Day effort is divided into two parts:
One is our "Aloha" site - a bit more fun and casual (described further down this page).
The other is our "Competitive" site - a more serious effort usually held in the foothills
but moved to the high plains due to historic fires throughout the Colorado rockies.

Colorado Forest Fires What Happened?
Our 2002 "Competitive" Field Day effort took place
at the QTH of KGØPP due to the forest fires that
closed our traditional Rampart Range site in the foothills...

Note: clicking on these "Thumbnails" will bring a larger view.
However, even more photos and information are accessible in our monthly publication, The Low Down.
All photos were taken by Roger J. Wendell (WBØJNR) except for the one of him in #8 (that was taken by WØHEP)

This year, our "Aloha Site" location was:
Bear Creek Lake Park
15600 West Morrison Road
Lakewood, Colorado

As always, operating attire: was the required Hawiian Shirt
(Management supplied shirts for those who forgot!)

And, Saturday night was CQC's world famous pot luck and BAR-B-Q!



942 Q's 8500 points less bonus points.
A drop of 3000 ft in elevation from Rampart Range Road in the burning Pike
National Forrest. The fire is South and West of our normal site but the area
was closed. We moved to Jim KGØPP's property east of Denver.
Three towers. 2A category.
Our plan for 4A was shut down in the move.
Conditions were poor on 15m and not much on 10m
a few very short openings on 6m . That left 20m as the work horse. Our 4 el
mono bander was working very well.
