Field Day 2024

ARRL Colorado Section Manager Amanda Alden K1DDN with WARS members

Field Day 2024 is in the books. We operated as a 2 Alpha (2 transmitters plus a VHF/UHF station) and had our trailer set up for packet radio.

The picnic drew a good crowd and we managed to contact 46 states in the 24 hours of operations. Thanks to everyone that helped set up, cook food, make contacts, fix antennas, and tear down.
Let's do it again next year!
