Winning Field Day with One Contact
On Field Day Saturday, I tuned around and did some listening. I planned to give out a few points if I heard a station I knew, but I did not plan to operate seriously. After all, even though it is allowed, to me, operating from home with my usual station did not fit the true meaning of Field Day. Despite what many hams think, Field Day is not really meant to be a contest; rather, it is intended to test our emergency preparedness. Unfortunately, I had done nothing special to be prepared.
