Field Day 2016

This year’s Amateur Radio Field Day event took place on June 25-26 involving over 30,000 amateur radio operators throughout the US and Canada. I was again the 80/15 CW band captain for my local radio club, Fox River Radio League (W9NE). I brought out my drone to get some aerial photos of our site at the Elburn Forest Preserve, about 50 miles west of downtown Chicago. Here’s a gallery of our site as taken from my Phantom 3
