Hi, All -

More detailed comments will follow later, but the Team made 185 contacts during Field Day, broken down as follows:

15m - 8
20m - 48
40m - 74
80m - 55

This is not bad at all, considering the poor solar conditions and high local noise level (especially during the daylight hours). Equipment worked as expected. Openings on 15m lasted a whole hour or so ( :-( ) . Early in the event 20m was dominated by the "big guns" so us little guys couldn't get a word in edgewise until later in the evening/Sunday morning.

Some notable contacts - Hawaii on 15, 20 AND 40m; Guam on 20m; Puerto Rico on 20m (the latter called collect ;-) ).
