Field Day Shortfall

This year’s Field Day activity is over.

We didn’t do so well.

Last year we scored over 9,900 total points.  This year’s score looks like it will be a bit under 2,300.

There was a notable lack of operators this year.  Some who normally help us were unavailable.  Those of us who were there did the best we could with what we had.  We even had a visitor come by and make some contacts for us!  Thanks Rick – W4PC!

So now we regroup, go on with normal activities, and dream about a day next June when we can once again brave storms, bugs, malfunctions, and heat to participate in our 58th Field Day.

And we must hope that we do not get called out for a REAL emergency.  We are ready, but no one wants a catastrophe!

Wait till next year!!!
