Ham radio boondocking 2020 (so far)

We have only one day (and night) To go, and only 10 people have stopped by so far, but I kind of thought that NO one would show in this year of the V.
Three Scamps, 2 clams, a screen tent, a sleeping tent, and a Round Top, but only 5 people spent the night.
We did need to start a generator today to cool the communications shelter, but it has been solar for most power needs. We do need to unplug my solar controllers after charging because of the noise on the radio. In this case the generator is radio quiet. Search ac0gv on APRS.FI for our location.

I think everything we had on the air was home made. The popular one is a "LOOP" that has a dip in the center if the AM broadcast band so it needs a tuner. Good for 160 but the users tell me it's best on 20. It runs to an old army com shelter that spends all year on the boondocking lot. (The little green box in the picture.)
