Re: FIELD DAY 2003

IIIIIIIIIII  FFF               everyone behaves properly, 5w into a 14 dbic
antenna should be plenty of uplink power on 70cm.  I'm not familiar with how
much antenna gain would be needed for L-band.  Under normal conditions
100-150w EIRP is exactly how I operate on 70cm.  I am hopeful that the word
is getting out that running excessive uplink power is detrimental to
everyone.  I will be attempting to work AO-40 QRP from our club's FD
operation.

Good Luck,
