Mid-range Field Day Finish

Screen Shot 2014-11-10 at 1.12.54 PMThe ARRL posted the digital edition of QST, which contains Field Day results. W4CAE finished around the upper-middle of our 5F division, which places us in the bell curve performance-wise. I’ve written here before that I didn’t like how the day played out for me, owing to local interference of (mostly) RF and (occasionally) the social kind. We never had a 6 meter opening, the digital modes were slow to get running, and we were missing one of our beast-mode CW guys. The interference is an issue we need to get sorted out… we are literally beating ourselves. We need filters.

I’m not going to rehash the frustration of the day, but all things considered, it looks like we did OK, and if nothing else, we overwhelmingly bested the rival gang across town (although to be fair, they operated with less guys).
