16 members of the *PUNE HAMS AND AMATEUR RADIO CLUB-VU2PHQ participated in the club’s field day event at the *temple town of Jejurie 60kms south east of Pune city. Eight QRP stations were set up and different types of antennas were used. There were inverted V antenna, the end fed long wire antenna, end fed dipole antenna and the verticle antenna etc. Of these five stations were using the uBitex Radio. By the time the stations got setup it was noon. At that time of the day the band conditions didn’t look favorable, but by late afternoon they were able to work a few VU & YC with their just 5 watts of power.

One of our club members Devendra Vishwakarma VU2DVI who couldn’t participated in the field day as he was yet in his hometown near Jabalpur in MP, setting up a field station and made contact with those participating in the field day at Jejurie. We were able to study the performance of various antennas that were used and the importance of antenna orientation.  It was an interesting day full of learning and fun.
