Field Day Report 2016 with photos and video link

28 Jun

Al (VE7BEU) and I (VE7GOF) were able to go into CFAX Radio on June 20 and talk with Frank Stanford for 1/2 hour. Thank you Al for coming with me, we were able to cover a lot more areas besides Field Day which I could not have done alone.

Saturday afternoon CTV came out to the Field Day site and did some taping for their evening news. Hopefully this will give us extra points.  You can also see the latest INET online video from Chris here.  And Steve VA7KH has prepared maps of the contacts here Field Day 2016.

Christopher (VE7ALB) received the field day award this year, which was very deserved.

We had over 50 Amateurs involved over the two days this year and over 35 people for the barbeque.

Number of contact made:  519 for CW, 185 for Voice, and 12 for Packet.  This is a new club record for contacts. Hans will figure out the total points, multipliers and extra point. The total will be submitted shortly.
