Field Day 2015 is now over and done, but a great time was had by all!

A full gallery of event pictures can be found at the end of this post…

We operated Field Day once again as K5GOE and finished the event with 223 QSOs, including 22 digital contacts. We’ve had higher QSO counts in years past, but everyone present had an opportunity to operate, and that’s a good part of what Field Day is all about.

The weather this year was AMAZING, with high temperatures only around 82F and lows near 60F (brrr!). Those of us on the night shift even had to break out some jackets in the wee hours of the morning!

As with the past few years, we operated on battery power only, backed with solar power. We had 9 club members and alumni assist with activities this year (everything from operating to setup/teardown).

Thanks to everyone that participated and came by for a visit… we are already looking forward to next year!

Larry, WJ5V, arrived late Saturday night in a formal kilt… turns out he just got back from his son’s wedding… now THAT’S a committed advisor!
