I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for all their hard
work making Field Day an enjoyable event. Despite many obstacles,
we managed to do quite well this year.
In particular, I want to thank Kevin, KJ4IVJ for all his hard work throughout Field Day. He kept us up and running despite the technology's desire to stop us! LOL
Thanks to all the hard working operators and support people who
made this event possible. Our CW operators are the best and by
far, had the best place to operate from. Thank you to Jerry,
K7UPJ, for allowing us the use of his beautiful RV for a CW
station home. And thank you to Kevan, N4XL, for traveling down
from Greenwood to help out as well. It was so good to have you
Thank you to Emergency Management, Paul and his staff, for the
use of the trailer, the FLEX 3000's and the porta-potties. They
were very important for our SSB operations.
Thanks to Schofield for the use of the 7300 and thanks to Annie and her father Jim who we would never have met if it were not for the hard work of Kent, Mike, Dave and so many others at Schofield. :)
It was so good to see Dr. Marc Tarplee and Dr. Jim Boehner who
stopped by for a short visit.
I am sorry that I was unable to stay the entire time. My day job
called and I had to help a parishioner's family as they said
goodbye to a loved one. But I so enjoyed the 12 hours I had with
Lastly, while Kent Hufford, KQ4KK, was unable to be there, his
presence was felt none-the-less. He was greatly missed and we hope
he will heal quickly so that he can continue as our Trail-boss for
Again, thank you all for all your hard work and I am so looking
forward to next year!
