It’s Not A Contest, But…

…as in baseball, the stats are a fun part of the game.

Field Day results are out!

This year we scored 26% more points than last year!  This was in no small part due to our emphasis this year on outreach with things such as educational activities, youth involvement, supported agency involvement, elected officials’ involvement, and promoting amateur radio to the wider public.  Aside from enjoying ourselves, and having a great barbecue, these were the aspects of FD that we stressed and which also, incidentally, accrued points and account for this year’s higher score. 

Last year, in 2021, we were the second largest Field Day operation with 14 simultaneously transmitted signals.  The largest operation last year was Vaca Valley Amateur Radio Club in Vacaville, CA with 15.

This year, in 2022, we were the largest operation in the country with 17 simultaneously transmitted signals and Vaca Valley was second largest with 14. 

Congrats and BZ to all who participated in Field Day 2022.
