Wes Calls CQ!

2015 Central Electronics Field Day With Wes Schum

A big thanks to Nick, K5EF for organizing, and John and Diane Vogt for graciously hosting the 2015 Central Electronics Field Day event in Jonesborough, TN on June 28th and 29th. Diane is the daughter of Wes Schum, W9DYV, the 94-year-old founder of Central Electronics. Other attendees included Rob Robinson, Joe Gerry (W3GW), Joe McCaha (WA5EIJ), Paul Christentsen (W9AC), Ron Scalise (WA5ZFP), Tyler Davidson, Lynn (K5LYN).

The classic Central Electronics 200V was coupled with the rare 600L broadband amp,and fed into a tribander beam up about 25 feet.

Next year's 2016 event is currently scheduled to be July 23, 2016 at the same location. "State of the Art Vintage Sideband" examples will be featured for display and operation, safe from the weather in the big tent. Bring your projects and all your stuff for the swap meet facilities - both under the tent and tailgating with many acres available.

A mailing list for interested attendees and more information will be made available on vintagesideband.org soon. Plan now to attend!
