Field Day 2012

Field Day 2012 found me at home this year, so I ran a 1E station off of deep cycle batteries, about a total of 4 sporadic hours of search and pounce CW operations netted me about 60 contacts and a section map that looked like this.

My CW skills are lacking somewhat, I used FLDigi to fill in the copy where I failed.  Once I had the fill, I could copy the CW. It is amazing how that works, by the end of the operating I was getting better at the copy.  The station was IC-7200, LDG AT100 and a G5RV up about 30 feet.  I went to the SVRC Field Day dinner and tried some Phone operations, I have to say that CW is much easier on the ears to operate.
