Field day was a success. 137 total contacts with 142 points including digital. Points and contacts may be higher. The 24 hour night run was fun (BORING!!) and tiring. Might do it next year but will be prepared with sleeping supplies and lots of snacks (Junk Food). Gonna try and do a different antenna scheme to keep digital stuff from bleeding over into the analog phone section. 20 meters was off the hook till 3AM!!
