Did you get a chance to do any operating during this year's Field Day?
The event ran for 24 hours this past weekend and I found conditions to be challenging. 
I was able to work about 45 stations on 20 and 40 meters using only PSK-31 but most were in the northeast US , Ontario and Quebec, no rare DX!

Let us know how you did, post a comment using the E-mail form on the right.....
