Preliminary Field Day Results

This is a re-post from the YRC Yahoo email reflector:

Below is a quick summary from the W9YRC Field Day operation. I will be working on the official entry to the ARRL this week and plan to get it filed by the end of the weekend (it’s a little like doing your taxes, but simpler). If people took photos of some of our bonus point activities, such as the solar panel or the satellite demonstration, please e-mail me a copy of the photo so that I can include it with our submission as documentation.

+ Total QSOs: 1,440, including GOTA and 6M (previous modern history club record was 1,333 in 2009)
+ ARRL sections worked: 79 (out of 83, the only ones we missed were AK, PR, Northwest Territories and Newfoundland)
+ Not surprisingly, Illinois was our top ARRL SECTION worked: 7 percent of our QSOs on Station1, Station2 and 6M were with Illinois stations
+ Pennsylvania was our top STATE worked, 90 times
+ Seven percent of our QSOs on Station1 and Station2 were with Canadian stations
+ On Station1 and Station2, the QSO breakdown was: 4 digital, 569 CW and 697 SSB
+ The GOTA station made 170s QSOs, all on SSB. The club needs to work on better filtering/antennas for that station, and George and I are already talking about possibilities.

Those are the highlights. If you want to know QSOs by operator, shoot me an e-mail and I’ll send that data your way.
