Field Day Box Score

We had 1,106 contacts this year, a 6% increase over 2015. We have 3,766 QSO points, a 15% increase. Our claimed score, with bonuses, will be 5,116 points.

The band conditions at the start of the event were really lousy. Everyone who stuck with it and made contacts should feel proud!

But no matter how proud we feel, next year will be even better. That’s the way it is in the DARC!

[One caution…the Field Marshals have warned me they’ll be double checking my late-night math and that the numbers above are just preliminary. Watch this space for updates!]
