Field Day 2008

HCRA finishes 24th in the country
First in WMA and 7A

Better than expected propagation combined with a strong core of dedicated operaters
equals one of HCRA’s best Field Day scores ever.
The GOTA station was a big hit. Guided by Ed, KB1NWH and John, Kx1x a half-dozen
new and/or inexperienced operators had the time of their lives!
A big thanks goes out to Jim, KB1JVF for an excellent job and to his wife Kathy for lots of wonderful food!
