There is a much bigger wrap-up article to come yet but in the meantime, thanks to everyone that came out to Field Day this year.

This weekend (May 1 and 2) is the “4 QSO parties in one” weekend.
This includes the New England QSO Party (6 NE states), 7th Call Area (8 states), Indiana and Delaware.
QSO parties are a great way to pick up states you need to WAS on different bands. With better propagation lately, you may even be able to get some 10 meter states.
