We primarily operated an Icom 746, using an ocf dipole for 10-80 meters, set up by JB and Fred. No pileups but we had fun nevertheless.
It was a beautiful day with cool breezes off the river, and we all had a great time, whether we operated or not.
A special thank you to Scenic Hudson for suggesting their park, to the Clearwater for allowing us use of the porch, facilities and electric, and to Save Esopus Lighthouse Commission for their ongoing work on restoring the lighthouse.
