Field Day 2018 is now in the log. By all accounts, everyone had a great time. As always, many people put in extra effort to make Field Day a success. It was great to see Keith and Barbara and have them with us for Field Day Coordinator Jay (WJØX) was outstanding. He was on edge about the arrival of the tents Friday, but they were there when needed. Bill (KC4TKL) and the improved power for the network logging system worked flawlessly. The entire network was solar powered. No worry that someone would fail to keep the generator fueled like last year. The solar phone stations, the logging network, the welcome tent talk-in and the NTS messaging stations all used the solar system.
Coach Brian (KCØBS) explained amateur radio capability to standing room crowds in the Salvation Army communication vehicle. Norma and her testing team were positioned qualified two new technicians, a general and an extra at the testing tent. The National Guard visited us again and a few made contacts using the GOTA station.
Gerard Jebaily (WX4STM) from channel 41 dropped by again this year. He visited the phone stations and showed off a drone and the 41 jeep. The Salvation Army set up one of its canteens and served snacks and drinks Saturday.
A little rain occurred Friday night and some more as we were breaking down were the only thing that dampened the weather. No oppressive temperatures Saturday or Sunday.
