Field Day 2020: Thumbs Up!

You can’t keep a good ham down, and that was proven with a great Field Day 2020 at the Clarke County Fairgrounds and Tom Sherwood KW4CW’s leadership. Social distancing and other pandemic precautions were taken, but the Shenandoah Valley Amateur Radio Club was on the air and well-attended, all things considered. We made over 600 contacts!

Thanks to John Foote W3GX for these great photos above and below.  Tom KW4CW has already submitted our results. CLICK HERE to view/download the stats.

Mark your calendars next year for the fourth full weekend in June: June 26-27, 2021.
