Well it's over...
Between the terrible noise on both 20M and 40M, all the noise the show created all by its self, the blazing sun and 90+ heat, we still managed to make over 140 contacts at our joint venture Madison, Union, and Delaware County Special Event Station at the 2019 Miami Valley Steam Thresher Show and Reunion.
Using a G5RV Jr antenna with 100 watts stations from Italy, Nova Scotia, Spain, a bunch from Canada, and my favorite Derry, North Ireland were logged. I don't know about other years, but this year we had wrist bands and vehicle passes and parked right behind the gas/radio station.
List of characters that made it possible:
