The 2018 Field Day results have been published. The combined Kings County / Annapolis Valley ARC entry was NUMBER ONE in all of Canada in any category, with 1892 QSOs and a score of 6448! Overall we were 131 of 2902 participants.
These are excellent results, and clearly show the benefits of two clubs working together to provide emergency communications support. Well done to all those who took part!
Field Day is this upcoming weekend! This year, AVARC will conduct a joint Field Day with the Kings County Amateur Radio Club (KCARC). With the recent emphasis on emergency communications by both clubs, collaborating for Field Day will enhance our ability to work together in an actual disaster.
Dates and Times:
Field Day will take place on the weekend of 23/24 June 2018. Setup will start at 1500 Friday afternoon. The operating part of Field Day starts at 1500 Saturday and continues for 24 hours. We will then tear down and return home.
Last year I described several Low Band RX antennas that would enable you to
hear DX stations on 160, 80 and 40M. This will show you how to build
transmit antennas that will help you break the pileups!
