Field day 2022
We all shared a turn at making contacts and logging. I’m pleased to say we managed to make 153 contacts. 20 meters was difficult Saturday and Sunday. 40 meters was nice Saturday night!
2021 Field Day

2020 WTRA Field Day
On June 27 and 28, members of the Western Tidewater Radio Association participated in the annual ARRL Field Day. This year, due to coronavirus restrictions, the ARRL allowed members to operate from home and aggregate scores for a club total. Through the use of N3FJP Field Day Logging software, use of the N3FJP Club Score Processor and some last-minute work by Ron N4TJI, each station was able to upload score updates which were then presented on a webpage (see image). Participating at the Field Day site at the Windsor Police Station were KA7HBH, N4DIR, KK4PVE, KM4EBT, KJ4HMZ, WA4JUO and WB4KZI. Operating from their home stations were W4DXZ, N4KIT, WB4GUH and W4RGN (our CW ace in the hole!).
The club’s total QSO count is 517 with final score to be determined. Many thanks to all for another successful field day!
