>From the contester's perspective ... Field Day is perhaps the MOST
CHALLENING and difficult contest of all !!! Anybody can click off
100/hr in the tightly formatted "Sprints" but try for a real challenge,
try FieldDay ....
Almost every station is weak as ^&#%$ .... due to temporay setups, low
line voltage, etc. Add in chronicaly poor band condx ....
thunderstorms, QRN, and summertime QSB.
And finally add trying to complete a QSO with ops who can't send, or
don't know ANY phoenitics .... AND .... the ops change every thirty
minuts .... AND many stns don't even seem to keep a dupe sheet!
Now, MR hotShot fast talkin' contest op, let's see you run 150/hour in
FieldDay!!!!! Goood Luck
