INTRODUCTIN TO HAM RADIO

What is Ham Radio?

Amateur Radio (ham radio) is a popular hobby and service that brings people, electronics and communication together. People use ham radio to talk across town, around the world, or even into space, all without the Internet or cell phones. It's fun, social, educational, and can be a lifeline during times of need.  MORE INFO

Our QSO count from Field Day   3A -------------- HF Phone: 1250   HF CW: 434   HF Dig: 130   VHF PH: 10.   GOTA ------ HF Phone: 67.   TOTALS: --------------
Phone: 1327   CW: 434   Dig: 130.   GRAND TOTAL -----------  1891.   Last year we had a total of 2065 QSOs.  We saw a drop in HF CW QSOs due to having only one CW operator instead of three CW operators, a drop in GOTA, an increase in Digital, and an increase in HF Phone. 
Note that our one CW operator (Andy, N2CN)  put up a full half of what three CW operators did last year. 
Remember that this is just the QSO count.  Now we have to apply all the  arcane rules to compute points.
A great job of leadership by Terry W1TSM, our Field Day captain.
