O-Dark-Thirty in Purcellville, Virginia

LARG - K4LRG Convoy Forming For The 2014 Berryville Campaign

           Like is our practice, we formed up by 0515 hours; it is still O-Dark-Thirty. The Campaign was well organized. We had a nice 5-unit convoy out of the old IGA parking lot in eastern Purcellville by 0525 hours local. Rick - AI1V (now N1RM) was point. There were no delays and our traditional spot under the tall trees was available. Again, some had spent the night after setting up on Saturday. The weather was great with no threat of rain. It didn't take long for the early birds to find us and the good stuff was gone by 8 AM. Dave - KE4S helped Norm find a nice 6M 100-watt multimode transceiver and very nice 5-elemnt 6M yagi antenna. Things slowed by 1130 hours and we "Closed Station and March Ordered." It was so nice to see so many of the Loudoun ARG and our other friends. As show below, if you need a nice radio or antenna then this is the place to shop around. We look forward to another in 2015.
