01/28/2023 | Discovery of Gold in California 175th Anniversary Special Event Station

The 2023 Winter Field Day / Special Event Station / POTA Activation was a great success.   We logged 425 contacts for POTA and the Special Event Station from seven different countries. Winter Field Day got 371 of those contacts.   The weather on Saturday was great, blue skies and sun.  We had lots of visitors, and several different people operated the AG6AU station.  Sunday turned out to be cold with some drizzle.   We made a good run on 10m of 90 QSO’s and decided to call it quits at the end of Winter Field Day period.  We were able to pack up the station while most everything was dry and get people home to watch the 49’ers game (sorry fans).   It will be interesting to see how we did for Winter Field Day. We got some extra points for being outside and portable.  Thanks to everyone who came by to help and operate the station.
