GOTAhams Posts Field Day entries to ARRL.org website

Our secretary Kathi KD6CAF has been working feverishly since Field Day to compile all the logs and bonus point information for submission to the ARRL for our final score. OK yes I know “it’s not a contest” and we seem to revel in the contact not the amount of contacts. Personally I love to see how far we “got out”, who we contacted and most importantly getting new hams and non-hams “On The Air”. as far as distance we did make a Florida contact, many in the Midwest (before their storms hit) Minnesota, Illinois etc., we even did a couple Canadian contacts late Saturday evening. The GOTA station made a Texas contact! I am quite proud of everyone involved in our Field Day and especially Vilma Arlotti for feeding everyone and finding time to “Get On The Air” calling CQ, making some of those 40 meter contacts and impressing her Extra Husband (and our Club Call sign trustee) Great Job Vilma!

I do realize that there is a much publicized opinion that Bonnelli Bluffs (formerly East Shore RV park) has little to no propagation? I also realize that My GOTAhams believe they can get useable propagation out of any site they are assigned. This will certainly serve us well in the event of an emergency where we will HAVE to communicate from the worst of sites. Isn’t this what Amateur Radio is truly about? serving our communities when and where we are needed!

Besides Wouldn’t you rather spend Saturday night overlooking a beautiful Lake with the Los Angeles Skyline in the background? Yeah, that’s what I thought, So did we (c;
