Don, WA1BXY reports:

I would like to thank everyone who came to SEMARA and made contacts for Field Day.  I would also like to personally thank some key people who helped made this event a success.  Scott, KE1CN helped get the weekend started, since I was unable to kick it off.  Marty, KA1YFV got things in order outside and helped to break things down.  JP, AG1Y worked his magic on the grill and with a late night pizza surprise.  Mike, KB1NB donated his heavy duty extension cord.  We had a total of 11 operators during the event.

It was a pretty successful “contest” and we got to see what bugs have to be worked out with the new vertical.  All in all, the antennas played well with each other with minimal interference, especially running 3 stations at once.  There were a lot of antenna switching between different stations which got confusing at times, but it worked out pretty well.  Once I go through the log, do corrections and calculate bonus points, I will post the break down and raw scores.

Thanks again and hopefully we can add more contacts next year.

  1. Hi Don,

    I just want to say you did a great job and it was great to see Scott-KE1CN helping out and pitching in here and all the other club members you mentioned and operators who operated the station. I’ve known Scott for many years and it was great to see and work with him. I’m glad the weather worked out so I could get there last night and today to help as an operator. I hope this becomes a yearly thing at SEMARA and we can get more operators and continue the tradition. For a first year Field Day in a number of years at SEMARA, I thought it was great job.

    Also, I want to thank the club president Marcel, all the other club officers and the BOD for all their work to get that building in place and the station in place including the work details, clean-up and all the work that made the building and station possible. Its done the right way and its a fantastic setup. Great job to all!
