During the several Field Days I have operated from home, as contrasted to
operating with a serious club effort in the field, it is play time.
I operated with serious efforts in the field, starting in 1969 and extending for
about 40 years with K2AA in New Jersey, frequently as a band chairman, and some
years as overall chairman; twice with a friend from a mountain in Massachusetts;
once with a club in Pennsylvania (W3GS?); twice with K4TLH and the Tallahassee
Amateur Radio Society in Florida; and more recently with N5TT, the Williamson
County ARC in Texas.
Most of what I have done is on CW, but I spent some time working DX on Friday
night and running stations at K2AA during FD numerous weekends with a 40m 3 el
wire beam SSB that was a lot of fun.
This year, I decided to spend most of my time on 10m and it was nice to have 10m
back. Ten turned out to be productive and fun. It almost felt like having a
Some years ago, I started focusing on 6m at FD at K2AA in New Jersey and other
FD's from home in New Jersey, Florida and Texas and enjoyed that very much.

I was pleased to see some CW activity on 6m in the short time I was on the air
on Sunday this year. Maybe next year, I will make it a habit again, and some of
you can join me below 50.100.
