2014 Field Day Results!

2014 Field Day Results!
Success! It took the ARRL almost six months to count the results but the scores from our June 27 Field Day submission put WY7H at the top of the list for the 2E category (home stations using emergency power, less than 150 watts) for the entire 7th call area and the only 2E contender from Arizona. With 1,293 contacts and 66 points, we did the state and 7th call area proud in this category.

You can see the nationwide results in the December issue of QST. The 2E listing is on page 84.

RE: 2014 Field Day Results!
We made a fantastic showing in 2014. Not only that, but it was a lot of fun. The social aspect was just as important as the operating effort.

When you look at the listings, you will see that it doesn't take a whole lot more to win the entire category. Here are my suggestions to get us an even better showing in 2015:

Train new operators in rapid fire runs. Get them familiar with the station and the calling/answering protocols weeks before the event.

Set up the CW station with bandpass filters and a remote antenna so that we can operate simultaneously with the phone station.

What are your ideas?
