Just 1B KS. You'll specify "Battery" when you submit your entry.
Yaesu 817 for digimodes in my apartment. KJ6BQM on 10/6/16
My friend Lee KK4JSJ has earned DXCC running digital modes at QRP levels from his apartment. Check out his profile on I'm sure he would be willing to share his experiences with you.
Reverse Class D Exemption from Field Day AA1PR on 2/6/16
That's because this particular event is called Field Day, not Home Day! :-)

Seriously, the rules for Field Day have been set up to encourage portable/field participation using emergency power sources. Awarding points for home/home contacts made using normal commercial power entirely defeats this purpose. This would be analogous to, for example, allowing credit for NY <> FL contacts during the California QSO Party.

Don't forget about class E. Disconnect your rig from your A/C power supply and run it from a battery, and you'll get credit for every station you work!

Flash player Making site unusable KBurton on 2/6/16
I use Chrome with the Flashcontrol plug-in, so this is a non-issue for me.
It's perfectly normal to simply send your call sign once or twice when responding to a CQ. If he comes back to you, then you should send his call sign, since he will want confirmation that you copied it correctly.

If somebody sends me their call sign multiple times at the beginning of a QSO, I am going to assume that I copied it incorrectly and that he is attempting to correct me.
