Re: Exchange for field day

I'll disagree. Home stations are defined as those operating from a licensed location, ie. where someone with an amateur license resides, and whose license lists that location.
4.6. (Class D) Home stations: Stations operating from permanent or licensed station locations using commercial power. Class D stations may only count contacts made with Class A, B, C, E and F Field Day stations. 4.7. (Class E) Home stations - Emergency power: Same as Class D, but using emergency power for transmitters and receivers. Class E may work all Field Day stations.
Ignore the class D restriction on counting other D contacts, that was temporarily changed. There was a FAQ about locating a portable station on the property, and the ARRL stated it was not in keeping with the spirit of the rule unless the location was "a fair hike across the woods" or "in a farmers' field". The front driveway is not what they would define as portable.
