ARRL Field Day Waiver Rule In Effect for 2021!


Scott Davis
 

Hi All,

Kimberly, Chris and I hope that everyone is doing well!  

In case you haven't seen it already, ARRL's Field Day waiver rule is again in effect for 2021.  To enable the waiver rule functions in our Field Day Log 6.5 software, just click Settings > Enable Delta Station Scoring Waiver.  You will find our Field Day Log 6.5 here:

ARRL's Field Day rules don't normally assign points for Delta station to Delta station contacts. In 2020, to accommodate the social distancing safety practices necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic, ARRL granted a temporary rule waiver allowing Delta stations to work all other Delta stations for points. Fortunately, I retained the coding for that scoring option in future versions, so we are all set for Field Day 2021!

And don't forget that we can aggregate scores with our club members again this year, with each member of your group operating from their individual homes!  The free Club Score Processor, enabling that real time view, isn't necessary for submittal, but it really, really adds to the fun!  Our club loves using the Club Score Processor for all the major contests!

Looking forward to using FD software for the first time.  Have had great success with the software for SS and NAQP....along with ACL.

Thankfully Delta (Class D) stations are limited to 150 watts this year.    

For Field Day 2021:

  • Class D stations may work all other Field Day stations, including other Class D stations, for points. This year, however, Class D and Class E stations will be limited to 150 W PEP output.

High powered Deltas working each other last summer really ruined FD.
