Hope you all good,

Last weekend was field day. I was well pleased to gen onto 80m and call
those "surprised". Its been challenge to work battery powered / single
wire stations with such a high QRN levels but it felt good to make about
80qs on 80m and at least test station out. Good work guys, hope to be
longer on next year and sorry to those I heard calling back but couldn't
read...it was dreadful band at that time.

Even though Field Day is not technically a contest, it is one of the
opportunities to showcase "contesting" to lots of operators (and
that do not normally operate contests.


I hope that you will participate with a Field Day group and encourage
and non-experienced operators. Teach by example. Sit with them while
learn to "call CQ" or search and pounce. Help them learn a logging
Show them how to install a dipole.


The contesting skills that we take for granted need to be shared with
others. Field Day is a super chance to do this.


Many of us got our contesting feet wet at Field Day, take this once a
opportunity to "pass it on". Be a contesting mentor. 


See you in Field Day!


Be safe!
