Field Day 2021
The December 2021 QST has arrived.
Let’s check the club’s Field day 2021 results.
Aggregate score from eight entries on behalf of Cumberland ARC was 3,975 points.
The club call, K3IEC, was one of 22 Class 3E entries submitted nationwide and one of two Class 3E entries submitted from the ARRL Eastern Pennsylvania section..
This local entry represents the collective efforts of a group of CARC Members who operated three Field Day stations powered by an emergency generator. The group consisted of eager volunteers who braved the elements to ensure that K3IEC would be on-the-air and logged by other Field Day operations across North America. Recognition is awarded to members KC3KPD, KB3PQT, K3EYK, N8QVT, W3VRE, KC3SJE, and AF3I for their jobs well-done. Additional efforts put forth by friends, family, and agency officials brought total participation in the K3IEC operation to twelve.
Incremental support was provided by CARC Members who operated their Home Stations as Class 1D, making Field Day contacts, and submitting logs on behalf of their club. They include: K3EYK, K3EYL, KB3PQT, N3FWE, W3JJB, WA3KCP, and AF3I.
In total, there were 174 entries among all Field Day Operating Classes (A-F) from our ARRL section, Eastern Pennsylvania EPA.
Other ARRL sections demonstrating high levels of participation include:
Ohio OH 249 entries
North Carolina NC 215 entries
Illinois IL 197 entries
Virginia VA 195 entries
North Texas NTX 189 entries
So as you can see, EPA was the 6th most active section.
