Field Day 2003

The chart below shows our performance at Field Day this year. This is our final score as submitted to the ARRL.  QSO’s were down some from last year, but the bands certainly didn’t cooperate at all during FD weekend. Nevertheless we had a great time. Stay tuned for more pictures soon….

Thanks to everyone who put lots of hard work, sweat, skill, time and effort into making this one of our best Field Days in many a year. Remember, the score isn’t everything! The food was great, the antennas awesome and lots of people stopped by and had fun. Sounds like it was a winner to me.
