Field Day 2022 Wrap-Up

How did Field Day go for you and your club this year?

Many hams who participated will tell you that while propagation wasn’t ideal and the number of QSOs logged may not have matched previous efforts, the chance to once again gather in person to see old friends and swap tales of past on-air triumphs and travails made 2022 a year to remember—a reminder of why amateur radio remains one of the most satisfying (and most endlessly challenging and unpredictable) of all pursuits.

Despite propagation pitfalls, there were plenty of hams giving it their all. Check out this early review of the event from the ARRL (more than half a million contacts were already reported by July 1!). And enjoy these photos from the Portage County (Ohio) Amateur Radio Service’s Field Day activities this year, which included many of the active operators at DX Engineering:
