Record Rainfall could not Dampen Spirits at Field Day

Jun 23rd, 2019 | By | Category: Alerts

The many operators at the ARRL / DMRAA Field Day had a ball making contacts during the 1-day event.  The thunderstorm forced the crew to shut down during the nighttime.  The storm set a record of rain in Des Moines for June 22nd, a whopping 2.41 inches.  That said this year’s Field Day welcomed more than double last year’s attendance.  The DMRAA utilized both ARES trailers and both State antenna trailers.  Several antennas we station around the beautiful Fort Des Moines Historical Museum which was also open for visitors.  Many thanks to all who attended.  Kudos to Dennis, KAØDOS, Bob, WØSMS and Tom, NØTLW.
