Field Day has come and gone for 2015. We are claiming 2,794 points. We ran as a 5A and I can say on behalf of all who participated, Thank you for your support. Great job everyone.
For the most part, everything worked as planned. The food was good – Special thanks to Jim Penna, WB2LJT, for doing all the cooking. Well done. The breakdown was:
Carl – KC5CMX ON 15 M. Worked PH and CW
Elbert – KQ3K ON Digital, sometimes on 15, 20 and 40. Wherever the signals took him.
Roger – K4ZFW and Josh – K4DAE on 20 PH (over 400 contacts by themselves. Well done!)
Ron – KS4SW and Tony – K4OCF on 40 CW and PH, mainly CW
Ed – WB2UKX on 10 and it was dead. After Ron and Tony shut down on Saturday, he turned over a few contacts on 40 CW.
We had 20+ visitors, a visit from Ocala Style Magazine and will be in the AUG-SEP issue.
That’s about it for now. Job well done everyone and thank you.
