                Winter Field Day 2019

   It seems like we enjoy working out of the Nampa Fire Training Center for Field Day. It is a good way to work at a different location besides home and it is warmer then working out side in a tent. There were two active bands: 40 and 20 meters, with a little activity on 80 and15 meters. The break down on activity is:

80 meters - CW 12 contacts

40 meters- CW 29, Phone 13, and Digital - 26 contacts

20  meters: CW 15, phone 8, and digital  6 contacts

15 meters: CW 1 and Digital 2 contacts. 

    At least we had (almost) 4 bands to work with. We had a good turnout on hams: 

Bob, WRLS, Tony, KI7TMZ, Steve, WB7VEQ, Rick, KEPNW, John, KD7HGS,

Deb, KE7TMF, Bill, KD7FDW, Alan, W7ADM, Michael, N7YVC, and Jayson, KD7LWR.

   Our claimed score with bonuses was 6654. We had bonus points for not working at an established ham location and for not using commercial power.
