That's really nice to hear! I wasn't able to do Field Day this year due
to a death in the family, but I'm happy to hear that some of the birds
sounded like 20 Meters on a contest weekend.
Next year I'll most likely be 1E from Colorado as we're packing up and
getting out of SoCal in a couple of months, and I haven't looked into to
clubs in our new QTH area.
Glad you all had a great Field Day!
73, Jim KQ6EA
