W5Z, ARRL Field Day 2007
Operating from Inspiration Hill
The Hill Country Mountain Toppers Association (HCMTA) operated amateur radio stations East of Fredericksburg, TX in the world-wide annual ARRL Field Day event. They used the Special Event callsign, W5Z. They setup and operated emergency communications equipment, portable antennas, and attempted to make as many contacts as possible with other radio operators around the world.
The primary objectives are to hone skills to meet the challenges of emergency preparedness and to test our abilities using Amateur Radio.
