Field Day has come and gone for 2018. This year we did better in points than the previous 2 years but did not do as good with the walk up traffic as past years. However, we still had a decent turn out, mostly of hams that have been inactive getting back into the hobby. We added a couple more people to the Ham In A Day class on the 7th of July.
This year the radios stayed busy most of the 24 hours and most of the time both radios were active. We had a more active GOTA station than in the past as well.
Unfortunately I think the weather kept the walk up traffic lower than normal.
The setup and teardown this year was fast and efficient. Special thanks to everyone who came out to help with setup and/or teardown.
Here are some of the stats from field day:
|Number of people that operated, help to setup or tear down||18|
|Contacts on 160 Meters||0|
|Contacts on 80 Meters||15|
|Contacts on 40 Meters||204|
|Contacts on 20 Meters||97|
|Contacts on 15 Meters||4|
|Contacts on 10 Meters||21|
|Total Points For Contacts||698|
|Total Bonus Points||1010|
I setup a photo album with the pictures I have gotten from Field Day, feel free to send me your pictures and I can add them to the album.
