ARRL FIELD DAY 2018 RESULTS

ARRL FD 2018 results have been posted and after looking at the total number of class 2A NEMRA club had the following results. 
We had 497 total contacts; under 150 watts power, 11 participants; with a total of 2,168 points. There were a total of 35,250 participants with 2.903 clubs participating with a total of over 1.18 million contacts.  
I counted a total of 282 2A entries and we were ranked at 135. That's well above the top half of the US and Canada (North America) that ran class 2A.
I know this is a far gap from 1st in 4F but you need to know that there were only 24 4F participating clubs this year. 11th place 4F and our score were compatible. With this in perspective, I am personally very pleased with what we did locally. 
I think this was a great FD, we had a lot of fun, good food, and fellowship. Several hams got to get on the radio for the first time and log some radio time and get the experience they needed and wanted. Several of us learned some new things about the radios, antennas, and procedures. 
Anyway, GREAT JOB to everybody that participated. 
Now, its time to start thinking about 2019 Field Day.
Take care and God Bless.
