Bumping this to gage interest. Does anyone want to test your skills at getting a station on the air afield? I have not decided what my plan is, but if I'm solo I might do a backpack portable 1B (small solar panel & battery).

But I would be very happy to coordinate a team effort, just need to come up with a location.

BTW, you do not have to have an HF station to work Field Day. I will and most stations will, but if you want to shake out your portable VHF setup that would be fantastic. If we have people interested our station could be a GOTA, Get On The Air, station. Which lets non-hams participate by allowing a non-ham to talk with a ham present and controlling the radio.
