[from Steve Pocock VA7KH – former director for the WARA Field Day]
ARRL Field Day 2017 results have just been published.
WARA station VE7VCC took top honors in B.C. We came FIRST in our 2A category. In Canada, we came in 6th overall, bettered only by 3x VE3, 1x VE2 and 1x VE1 stations. A fantastic achievement.
Another figure to digest, assuming my math is correct (please check!), we beat 80% of all other stations in North America, irrespective of category, power and location, coming 593rd out of 2,964 total entries.
