The Kentucky Mountains Amateur Radio Club met at the Knott County Campground at about 1,500 ft elevation in area where the annual trail ride is held where thousands of horse riders come from everywhere bringing their horses to ride the reclaimed strip mines. However, since this was not the event weekend, we only saw cows and ATV’s. The Club Communication Trailer was pulled in by Dacker KK4UUY followed by campers owned by Ernie KK4LLG, Gary KK4CZO, and Johnnie KY4JLB. Setting up the trailer was easy as were the camper trailers, but the new Buddipole antenna was somewhat of a chore since it was the first time used with so many parts and pieces and paperwork to read but it was finally understood and RF began to flow to it. The first contact was with W1AW Portable 3! Jack KD4HPR came by and inspected setup since it was close to His OTH. Bert KB4ZHK enjoyed operating His 15 meter QRP CW rig throughout the night. The drawing for the shotgun was held and the winner was Jim Arnold of Letcher County. Evening meal was prepared with Cassie operating the makeshift outdoor kitchen. Later, a campfire was enjoyed and Gary’s Wife Eleshia provided marshmallows, hershey bars, and graham crackers and put together melted were a real treat. We all had a great time and are looking forward to Field Day 2015!
