Subject: Field Day '94 Report

This station Class 1E, at home, on battery, using an ARK 4 and a
folded dipole at 40 ft., worked 90 stations on 40M CW at 4 watts out.

Location: 84.00 W, 35.48 N, near Knoxville Tn.
Inet QRP'ers worked: None

Comments: Worked about 12 hours out of the 24, started duping stations
          toward the close. More difficult to make contacts than
          a QRP QSO party. Need a better QRP strategy. Tried "channel
          master", "in your face", and "hit and run". Nothing works well.
          About two contacts per frequency change. Need a preprint of
          all of the ARRL Section ID's in the cockpit next time.
          Propagation seemed normal. Some QRN due to thunderstorms late
          Sunday. 40 meters was enough for me. Really didn't miss 20
          meters like I thought I would. No 6's or 7's worked. 7ah
          gel cell down to about 11.7 volts at close.

73,
