John Moyle field day at Myall river camp

Every year on the 16th and 17th March is the John Moyle field day.  This year Horst VK2HL and I decided to got to a camping ground at the Myall River.

 The area is known as a bush camp with very few facilities. We prefer a bush camp to well organized caravan park.

One can find plenty of trees to string wire antennas.

We even had a campfire and few glasses of red.

This is my operating position for CW and Phone.  The antennas were G5RV and OCF dipole.
