It's that time of year again, where we all start looking for the annual Field Day results - and the wait is over! ARRL posted the results and WGARS has a lot to be proud of!
WGARS Participated in class 3AC this year, logging 199 contacts, scoring 1158 points, and placing 1398 out of 2720 participating groups. This year's Field Day setup went very well and participation was fair, however a Solar CME (Coronal Mass Ejection) began degrading band conditions Saturday night and by Sunday morning conditions had degraded to the point all bands were closed.
Despite losing about a third of our operating hours we still logged about the same number of contacts the previous year, scoring 284 MORE points (1158 this year vs. 874 last year) as a result of our additional operating modes & GOTA participants. We also placed higher in the rankings - at the 48 percentile this year vs. 38 percentile last year.Read more: 2015 Field Day Results
