Our 2023 ARRL Field Day at Eastbank Campground, Georgia

Rick NZ2I and I operated 2B GA on Lake Seminole from Eastbank Campground, Georgia. We managed 127 CW, 2 PSK-31, and 112 FT8 contacts. These counted ten points each. Our satellite QSO on RS-44 was five points for 2415 points total. All contacts were QRP, five watts or a little less. The bonuses were 750 points. Among the bonuses were the satellite contact, ten natural power QSOs, and a message to the Georgia Section Manager via WinLink.

This is our setup at campsite C-33. It has lots of bonus green space we used for antennas.

The Buddipole Buddihex hex beam is a real winner for field day.

These solar panels help keep the voltage up on our two LiFEPO4 batteries. The smaller panel is a Bioenno 60-watt. It is lightweight and portable.

Our Quickset Venture shelter

A view of our two operating positions in the shelter. Rick was on the left on digital modes. I was on the right doing CW.

I enjoyed a visit from Micky Baker, the ARRL Southeast Director.

We look forward to Winter Field Day, likely from the same campsite.
