Yes finally, we did it. A steam rally, just the place for steam powered radio.
No we didn't have as much room as previously experienced at the Vintage Machinery Rally, so the antenna situation was less than ideal. The VHF antenna worked very well, but hanging the 80m loaded dipole didn't work and we had problems getting out. I suspect that most of the RF was going to warm the ground.
The weather wasn't too good on Saturday, but the awning kept the rain off us and the tea kept flowing. The Flea Market brought me a nice gas lantern of fairly epic output.
