K7XC 2002 June VHF Contest
The Before Pictures....

First thing we did was position the tower trailer and Dave's truck, We then put my truck and tilt over mast in place & setup the 6M tent so we had a place to get out of the wind and sun to take a break while setting up.
 
When I went to bed at 10:30 PM, Six meters was assembled and ready to play with only a minor antenna adjustment needed before contest time. Dave stayed up till 5:30 AM assembling the 144, 222, & 432 antennas, prepping the tower trailer, and setting up the radio and amplifier..

5KW Gas Generator for the 6M Station

It's important to properly setup the Generator to minimize any
risk of fire and leave water and a shovel nearby just in case.

A good warning to the curious is helpful too...
