ARRL Field Day 2010

leave a comment

FD this year was great. Of course, I operated 1D from home. Ideally I would have been at some FD operation, but it wasn’t in the cards.

6m had some activity, but it didn’t appear to be nearly as “open” to Ohio as it was during the June VHF contest. Or, maybe less people were prepared/planning to operate on 6m.

10m was alright, but not spectacular. In the past month I have seen much better openings on 10m.

15m was just awesome from my perspective. I made a lot of contacts on 15m/20m CW and more SSB contacts on 15m than I have made at any other time since I obtained my ticket in 1991. 15m is my fav band, when it’s open.

I didn’t even attempt to make a digital contact. Dummy me. Although, there were so many CW stations that I wouldn’t have wanted to give up the time on CW to play on the digital modes.

My summary is below…

More fun than I’ve had in a long time. I’m beat…no stamina whatsoever.
Great conditions from my perspective. Thanks to all the stations that worked
