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.

We had around 60 people there and made around 1200 QSOs (preliminary scoring summary here) plus obtained our satellite contact. More to come but in the mean time, take a gander at this fantastic photo from our club president, Pat AA0O.

A normal task we always do on Field Day is to copy the W1AW special bulletin sent each year before and during Field Day. This activity simulates what you would do if in a real emergency and you were relying upon bulletins from the ARRL for information. So it is a good skill to learn. To boot, you get 100 bonus points for doing it.
