Yes I know some of the audience here knows the following
So No insults intended.
Looks like you are going to have Five stations
All Phone ????
That pretty much means one Band per Station
and I would recommend use of Band Pass Filters if anyone has them ?
One for each station.
Keep in mind even on different bands you will need to stay away from the fundamental harmonics
a Station on 14.175
Would interfere with a station on 28.350 easily and visa versa
To the point that some radios will be useless
Better radios with great rcvr out of band rejection will still get hammered if within 25 KHz of the Fundamental frequencies
I visit a lot of FD sites as the Section Manager each year and very few have more that 3 stations on the air
Because of the Rcvr overload issue, those that do have a large park with multiple covered areas
and the antennas are all pretty far apart (multiple wave lengths)
This problem is emphasized when Like design antennas are used
Within one wave length of each other
especially if they are parallel to each other
Offset by 90 degrees is much better.
Also Horizontal polarity versus Vertical polarity
means less interface potential between the two antennas
Severe cross “Talk”
Can harm most radios
So coordinate with who is on what band and Never should two rigs be on the same band
One possible exception is one rig on CW and the other on Phone.
Just some food for thought (SAFETY)
Use Gloves when touching Metal that has been laying in the Sun.
Hydrate, Hydrate and Hydrate
If you ain’t peeing often, you are too dehydrated !!!
Keep an eye on each other for signs of Heat stress.
I look forward to seeing the few, the proud, the weary ones that are still there Sunday Morning
after my Road trip to at least a half dozen other North Texas Field day sites.
