From Field Day Captain Andy W6AWS

Well folks, that's a wrap! And a hot one it was!

I just want to take a quick minute and say a hearty "THANK YOU" to all of you who participated in this years RCARCS Field Day at the Historic Ranch House in Rio Linda. We had a smaller turnout this year and I suspect it was because of the heat. Besides the heat and some pretty poor band conditions above 20m, we were able to log a significant amount of QSO's.

2016 River City ARCS Field Day

Special Thanks to Dave WB6YLK and Marie Martin for providing an excellent spread for our Saturday night potluck. Both Dave and Marie "slaved" and I don't use that word lightly over a hot BBQ to ensure we all had our fill of goodies. They also kept us cool with iced water and soft drinks as Marie making sure we had enough hot coffee to keep our eyes open all night! Thank you again. Hope it doesn't take a week to recover.

Thanks to Kevin KK6DCT for once again providing a flawless working network.

And also thanks to Jason KF6QXX for being our official lift operator. Sure makes life easy.

Finally, for those that missed it, CW31 was out and did 2 segments for Good Morning Sacramento. Here are the links below.
