Field Day 2008 is over and I have just completed compiling the scores
and writing the article.
The results will be published in the next AMSAT Journal (not the
May/June that is printing now) with some really nice photos that were
sent in. At the same time, I will post the results through ANS.
This year, we had 8 satellites used. There was even one QSO on AO-16. A
total of 120 QSO's were reported and we had 17 stations submit scores.
The most contacts were done on VO-52 this year. Behind that was AO-7.
Here are some stats from previous years.
2005 2006 2007 2008
Satellites 8 7 5 8
QSO's 120 258 207 220
Stations 11 21 13 17
