Hi Doug! You dont need a big beam on Field Day. In fact it would probably
better to not have a big beam for Field Day because you are working all
and often many will call you from all directions and your job is to work as
many as possible. Further, a beam that goes together easily is preferred
in our experience at the Twin City FM Club W0EF (usually a top scoring Club in
the 2A category) is the High Gain TA3, or Cush Craft A3 or A4. We also like
Hygain Explorer 14 but it is a little more complex to assemble for the
But if I had to narrow it down I would take the High Gain TA3. You can find
used for about $125 and they collapse for compact storage till next year!
Good luck and look for W0EF June 26-27!
