Field Day Results 2018

Field Day was a great success for us and we made many contacts (roughly 1400 to be specific) which is an improvement over last year. We were able to operate the radio throughout the 24 hour period and even activity on 15m and 10m opened up in the morning on Sunday until the close of the contest.
 
Many thanks to our operators:
KB1VYI
N2RDF
W1BMG
N1RR
K1JI
W2AQY
 
Most contacts were made on phone while Digital and CW made up about 25% of our contacts. Hope to have even more operators next year as well.
