Field Day 2005


Field Day 2005 was a great success for ACARES. Malcolm Keown, W5XX, ARRL section manager for Mississippi stopped by and checked out the operation Saturday. Below are the scores from this year and last year. Also posted are some pictures from the event. Thanks to everyone to help put up, operate, and take down the event. This was a complete team effort!
