Re: CMRA Field Day (AA0B+NO0I)

My $0.02 worth.

I heard a lot of stations on the waterfall, but for some reason they didn't hear me.   I dunno.

I did not run QRP as things got all tied up when I wanted to get stuff ready for FD, well other things popped up. 

So I used my regular stations, on main power.  1D

Most were 35 watts on the TS-2000

To copy the ARRL bulletin I had to use the variable band width of the Kenwood.  Some LID was right next to the ARRL and he made it impossible to copy the ARRL.  Perhaps if I had turned off the AGC it would have worked.  But I just cut the bandwidth down to CW withes and he disappeared.  100 points.

I did send a message to the sections, but later read it was supposed to be a formal message.  Mine was not formal.  So that may be rejected.

Oh the message out was on Winlink.  A couple of years ago I asked about that.  My answer was if I entered the traffic by radio, and they picked it up by radio, it was a good message.


Regardless here is a few more points for the pile.

Way to go guys. Racking up some points. This COVID-19 Field Day gave many more people opportunities to play and make some QSOs and points. At Rock Bridge, we end up with the Preliminary Total score of 1088. 
For reference, on 2018 we turned in a total of 1856, and 2019 a score of 1630. 
I haven’t added up what I’ve seen come in from all, but it will be well over previous years. 
It isn’t a contest and we aren’t in it for the points, but it is fun to see many people making a contribution to the club’s points total. 
Watch for the DEC QST to see final results. 
73,

Field day guys!!

It has been determined that ARRL had stated no abbreviations in club call signs, 

SO WE SHOULD ALL PUT:

 

Central Missouri Radio Association 

 

In the club field of your FD Report. 

Thanks,

Stay safe. Watch for lighting and observe 

1 wavelength at 144MHz social distancing.
