FIELD DAY: June 26 & 27, 2021

This year we each operated from our home stations.

From W0FS:

We "will go with the operate from home permitted by 2021 Field Day rules. We can operate under our own call signs and submit individual FD entries designating the club (or FD group) we are affiliated with, as we did last year. This does not preclude groups operating from the field with club call signs.

When you submit your FD entry, please show your group affiliation as "Boone and Hamilton Counties ARES" with that exact spelling to get the credit to the group. This also applies to any entry made for field operation by either club. You submit the entry per whatever fits the location you are at."
