Re: Park gathering activity idea

Doesn't matter to me. So they used one radio and moved it to each antenna.  I would say anyone who has a radio bring it. And use same power setting. CW probably more likely to show up on reverse beacon. Or ft8 which is a bit bigger pain to set up in the field.

Or were you thinking just run CW?

Our friend Robin G3TKF just told me about his club's gathering activity. It sounds like a lot of fun. They set up stations with 6 types of antennas and transmitted, then watched to see which antenna was picked up first on the reverse beacon network and how many spots there were for the transmission.
