"The Green Bean" Does Field Day 2006
We arrived on the summit just as Field Day was starting, finding only very light drizzle and no visibility. That didn't stop us from operating, though, as we even added a 6 meter antenna that, though crooked, worked well. Around 3 p.m. a rain shower came through, but after that--it actually cleared up! The remainder of the day was actually rather nice.
The park closed at 6:00 p.m. so we headed west, had dinner in Keene, and then went to Brattleboro, Vermont. A state park was our planned destination but it took so long to find it, it was dusk and probably the park would be closing. We ended up operating from an office park next to the Brattleboro rail yard--bonus! While operating, we watched the New England Central crew switch the yard with five rather worn locomotives.
