Field Day 2024

June 22, 23

Amateur Radio in the field! One of the largest ham radio events of the year, Field Day is an emergency operations exercise. Location for 2024 was the beautiful Arrowhead Ranch located at 615 Arrowhead Road, Camano Island, WA 98282. Field Day began at 11AM on Saturday, continued until 11AM on Sunday, and was open to the public from noon until 5PM on Saturday. There was an educational program at 1PM on Saturday and a Get-On-The-Air (GOTA) radio station (callsign KJ7FGG) for those who liked to try Ham Radio out!

The weather treated us well with only a little light rain and relatively mild temps. It was windy enough to overturn our food shelter on Friday night, but we've been assured that Russ can fix it!
The band conditions were quite good and we managed even more digital and SSB contacts than our impressive totals last year. Our GOTA station also did quite well with KK7NQW - Jonathan able to spend a lot of the day there and stay up late too. We're expecting a good increase in our total score.
We also had a nice surprise when W7PCK showed up on Saturday. John didn't bring his key with him so no CW contacts were added to the log, but it was very nice seeing him out at our Field Day again!
Comments from some participants::
KJ7LTT - Lee: Another great year for FD. Bob - yes we did pack the trailer - hope you're not too surprised when you see it!
K7VA - Doug: Great time! Thanks everyone for all the hard work.
KJ7FGG - Joe: Again, thanks to everyone who helped and operated. Also to Doug who logged for the last few hours in SSB.
AG7BG - Bob: Thanks to Lee for the report.
AL2I - Dave: Kudos to NJ7K - Jason who worked in the evening through the windchill making a ton of contacts all evening. Almost couldn't move at the end of it.
KK7NQW - Jonathan: "Before this event my total logged phone QSOs over HF was eight contacts. After field day I think I might have increased that number by at least 40 times. I had a great day full of fast paced and successful QSOs from Alaska to Florida. I look forward to next year."

At least one club member qualified for the "I Worked the Pig" Award during this event! Any club member who worked W7PIG at least three times could be eligble for this Award (See the Awards page for details). Be sure to submit your contact info to get your certificate. QSL cards are also available.

Information on QSO numbers and score will be added when available.
