ARRL Field Day 2017 Official Results

The Field Day 2017 results have been posted on the ARRL website.  They are also printed in the December issue of QST magazine.

Our club’s standing fell considerably this year.  But we made an effort, and we had fun!

Here’s the breakdown of the results:

– Out of 2,964 entries overall, W4ATD was #1016 (#673 last year).

– Out of 232 entries in the SE Division, W4ATD was #85 (#68 last year).

– Out of 41 entries in the AL Section, W4ATD was #14 (#14 last year).

– Out of 389 Class 2A entries overall, W4ATD was #211 (#139 last year).

– Out of 31 Class 2A entries in the SE Division, W4ATD was #16 (#12 last year).

– Out of 8 Class 2A entries in the AL Section, W4ATD was #5 (#4 last year).

We did not do as well as hoped, due to lack of participation. We declined everywhere except one place, where we stayed #14.

HOWEVER . . . .

We’re going to be better next year! Field Day 2018 will be June 23th and 24th! Make plans to be there and help out!
