Winter Field Day 2024

For Winter Field Day 2024, UPARC returned to the Clearwater Fire Training Center with our friends at the Clearwater Amateur Radio Society. This year was surprisingly warm enough to host the event outside (all evidence to the contrary given our current temperatures).
We had the usual assortment of HF stations with the three Elecraft K3 transceivers and the Hex Beam with the triplexer. Two wire antennas rounded things out on HF for low bands. Both clubs were well-represented with approximately 40 people attending.

So how did we do? In total, we made 1149 QSOs. You can see a breakdown of the contacts including the actual log on our website here.

We only missed one section in the US and a few Canadian sections.

Here are some pictures contributed by various people. The caption attributes the picture. See you at Summer ARRL Field Day…
