Anyone ready for Field Day 2020?
« on: June 19, 2020, 1934 UTC »
http://www.arrl.org/field-day        Glad that I looked, since I thought that it was the weekend after the ARRL VHF Sweepsteaks. But, for those that want to get away from that to just QSO, there's always the WARC Bands and 60M, as well as 146.520MHz FM Simplex.
Proving and convincing that someone is correct could be seen as a notable achievement. However, proving, and trying to convince, that someone is wrong can bastardize you for life.

Might be a good time for pirates to wave the flag as well...

Actually, yes... During Field Day dinners, and even breakfasts, folks have a tendency to see what other people's rigs can RX. I know that I have, so I would tune around 6925kHz, 13.900MHz, 15.050MHz, 1710kHz, etc. With many of these stations now SDR aided, this would be a great weekend to be checking for pirates.
