Every year, radio amateurs in the US get the gear out of doors on Field Day. The goal is to set up radio gear and antennas in not so ideal situations. It is meant to demonstrate what is possible in case of an emergency. Although, it is not a contest, it is treated by many as one. This year - 2020, we operated as a 2A Class Station again running two transmitters. Because of the COVID19 pandemic did not have a "Get On The Air" or GOTA. We still had a separate VHF Station. Again because of COVID19, there was NO family dinner. Dan KJ4TID, is the 2020 Field Day Coordinator. Despite the pandemic, the club has posted its best ever score of 9712 points. We will see how we stack up against the rest of the country during this very unusual Field Day. Thanks to all who supported the Field Day effort - operators, set-up guys, and to Dave K4SV for supplying the Force12 and the rigs. Special mentions: KE4EA and KJ4TID for co-leading the effort, KD4S for rig setup, W4EEY and NU4E for the VHF effort, W4RCW for helping set-up, WN4S for taking lead in assembly of the Force12. Till next year.
