Field Day 2004
Madison County Amateur Radio Club
June 2004 at the Pleasant Valley Fire District Headquarters
Field Day 2004 was the second for the Madison County ARC.  It took place once again at the PVFDH, the EOC for the Plain City, Ohio area. It enabled us once again to operate as an F class station.  The club bested last year's score by 100 points.  A club total of 2,094 points were collected.  QSO points were 1,094 (134 points CW, 88 points Digital, and 325 points Phone).  The power multiplier was 2 giving us the 1,094 total points.  On top of that we were able to add another 1,000 bonus points (100 points each for media publicity, public info booth, public place setup, W1AW message, natural power, site visit by an elected official - Sandy Atkins the Mayor of Plain City, site visit by a served agency official - Krista Peters the Madison County EMA Director, and presentations of APRS, SSTV, and remote control operation using six meters). A highlight of the event was the scruptious catering by new amateur Steve Buckley.  The brats and burgers were great and added a new and appreciated touch to our club event.
The 2004 results from ARRL indicate that the Madison County Amateur Radio Club took FIRST place in the Great Lakes ARRL Section in class 2F.  The club was in 17th place out of a total of 56 stations nationwide operating 2F.  For only the second year doing Field Day this is certainly a great accomplishment of the club.
