Paul, W0AIH, invited me out to the W9EAU Field Day site during my recent visit to Eau Claire, WI. I met a great group of hams there, including KB9S, KE9KW, W9AVM, and AB9GK. This hospitable group gave me a chance to log some 40-meter SSB and CW QSO's and share some hot coffee on a chilly Field Day Sunday morning in Wisconsin. I hadn't operated Field Day for years, so this was a big treat.
From left to right: AB9GK - Gene Radtke - 75m; W9AVM - Jim Humphrey - 20m; KE9KW - Jon Case - 40m. It's Sunday morning at W9EAU and these guys have been up all night!
