Field Day has come and gone and I feel like I have had my best Field Day ever.
I made 80 unverified FT8 digital contacts with stations around The United States and Canada. Each of those contacts counts for 2 points for a total of 160 points. A 2x power multiplier makes that 320 points. I sent 59 and received 48 NTS formatted messages. Ten of those messages originated at my station and counted 10 points each. I also sent one to The Western Pennsylvania Section Manager which counted for 100 points during The Western Pennsylvania Phone Traffic Net. There are also 100 bonus points for submitting this post.
I have submitted my entry with a possible score of 670 points, which will be added to the results for my local radio club, The Nittany Amateur Radio Club.
This certainly was a productive event. It’s especially impressive that you received responses from 48 out of 59 formatted messages. That’s 81%! Congrats on your total score and the contacts.
Hope you and all are well! Marcia
