FCARC Field Day History 2006-2017

These are FD scores back to 2006 as reported in the ARRL Contest Results archives (yes, we know, "Field Day is not a contest"). Also listed are breakdowns into basic categories (phone, cw, etc.) starting with 2008.

Note: We sometimes lose points from our claimed score. For each year the line beginning with "AC1L" is the official score as reported in QST (unofficial until QST report). The lines below are our raw scores. There may be minor differences.

Note that the high score in 2006 came about because both stations were operated QRP (less than 5 watts output). QRP stations get to multiply the total QSO score by 5. The actual number of QSOs was low and by all accounts it was a disappointing experience, especially so for the ssb operators who had a hard time being heard with only 5 watts. Starting in 2007 we have always operated in the Low Power (less than 150 watts) category. We make many more contacts and have more fun this way, but the total QSO score multiplier is 2 in this class.
