Winter Field Day 2020
Another wonderful Field Day has come and gone!! Our club had a wonderful turn out this year with 18 members that signed in. While we did not operate the entire 24 hours, we did operate through the evening and some on Sunday morning. For those of us that are Techs or don’t have much HF experience this is a great learning opportunity. Field Days also offer a great time for fellowship and refreshments!
As a club, we operated 2 radios, indoor giving us the 2I classification. We had the Icom 7300 on 40m & 80m and the Kenwood on 20m.
Below are some stats from the entire 24 hours.
148 Contacts made
29 Contacts on 80m
33 Contacts on 40m
12 Contacts on 20m
We spoke to 34 states, including Hawaii and Alaska and 2 Canadian Provinces. We covered all 10 geographic regions of the US plus the Pacific and Canadian regions.
The states or sections we made contact with are:
