Field Day 2013 Report
While the numbers were down a bit right across the board, the weather was good and everyone enjoyed themselves. Hans VE7OES and Myself (Jim, VE7GOF) as co-chairs for field day received numerous comments after the passing of Alan VE7WU that something should be done in remembrance of him. We came up with the idea of an award to be given out at field day. We took this to the executive of the West Coast Amateur Radio Association, and they approved it. The recipient this year is Al VE7BEU. I personally can not think of a field day in which he has not been involved in one way or another.
There were approximately 40 plus hams out over the two days, and there were about 45 people in attendance for the Barbeque. Now the part that everyone wants to know. There were: 187 contacts on phone and 164 contacts on CW. Here is Chris VE7ALB’s video for this years field day: http://youtu.be/Obfxl9o3tWI Some photos of the weekend are here Click on an image to enlarge it, then click on the small pointer to start a slide show.
