On June 25, 2016, members of the Kansas-Nebraska Radio Club Participated in the ARRL Field Day 2016 at the picturesque Bohemian Hall, South of Glasco, KS. Although the day started out partly cloudy and breeze, the evening house brought much needed rain to the area but the thunderstorms forced an early end to the day.
Band conditions were limited to mainly 20 and 40 meters with a few contacts coming from 15 meters. Fifteen meters produced the longest distance contact from Puerto Rico.
Our Field Day site had a few visitors including: Tom Claussen (Mitchell County Commissioner), Terrence Stewart (Riley County Police Citizens Advisory Member), David Dohe (Lincoln County Emergency Manager), and Rand Longino (Red Cross at Barnard, KS).
Contacts were limited due to band conditions and our shortened day but we were able to make 34 contacts. After inputting all of our information into the ARRL Field Day web form, including bonus points, we got a preliminary score of 980 bonus points and 68 contact points for a total of 1148 points. (Disclaimer – All points are preliminary and subject to review and editing by the ARRL. Official Points will be posted in QST.)
A big thank you to all who helped with Field Day and came out to join us. A special thank you goes to the Bohemian Hall for letting us use their grounds and building for Field Day!
Now it’s time to plan for NEXT YEAR! We hope you can join us then.
