Field Day Results, Sights and Sounds

Field Day 2014 is in the books and behind us. I think that overall it was a success! Certainly an improvement on last year and our thanks go to the Hams that contributed! If I missed anyone below please let me know and I will get them added to the list!

For our log totals, we had 113 total log entries and of those 49 were CW, 34 were phone and 30 were digital! The weather held us back some as we had one batch of heavy rain and then later a round of heavy lightning but with all of that and battling the big contest stations I think we did ok! We will work to improve on that for next year!

We had the nes media visit and do a little video feature for the news on Fox14 and KOAM TV stations. Stacey Lindsay came and interviewed a few of us, shot some video and put us on the news a few times and here is a link to the web story. I am unable to find a link to the newscast as it was broadcast but my mom saw us! Here is the LINK. Stacey also is interested in visiting us again and doing a more in depth story for the news! We are in the process of setting that up now!

Last year after setting up the night before at Brutus, I made a PSK31 contact in Venezuela. This year I was able to top that with a PSK31 contact with 5Z4EE in Kenya! Big Brutus sure is a great location for radio... when it is not wall to wall pile ups!

  1. To Jeff and all participants: You did a good job under bad conditions, and the stills and video make it all look like fun, even looking out of the truck at the rain. Thanks.
