Field Day 2019 is now in the log--a soggy log, at that. We were able to work for about 6 hours, but had to shut down when thunderstorms started to develop south and southwest of our Field Day location. We were on a very good pace making contacts. CW made 107, the two phone stations made 554 and the digital station cruised along, making 166 contacts. Contacts gave us 1000 QSO points. Bonus points, for things like public official visits and use of solar power pushed us to a total claimed score of 2,024 points.
Weather challenged us throughout the weekend. Club members set up the site before, during and after the Friday morning rain, which meant that the club could have its meeting Friday evening. Showers Friday night were not an issue. On Saturday we watched carefully as storms developed west of our location. Most of the day these storms passed to the north of us. After dinner, however, storms started to developing south and southwest of us. Both weather radar and lightning detection devices showed us that we had to shut down.
Another great job coordinating by Jay Greenough (WJØX). Bill Warrington (KC4TKL) had the network up and running with his improved solar power for the networking equipment. Twelve persons visited Norma in the license testing tent. Brian Short (KCØBS) manned the GOTA station. He presented a "contact certificate" to GOTA operators who made a contact. All the stations teams did a great job setting up and quickly shutting down due to weather. All the teams did a great job of breaking down Sunday
