General Discussion / Re: Amateur Radio Field Day Contest, this weekend
« Last post by ssfc72 on Today at 05:34:33 am »
Here is a Link to the 2021 scores. They were published in December 2021 so this years results will probably get published this December.
https://contests.arrl.org/ContestResults/2021/Field-Day-2021-FinalQSTResults.pdf

They don't list any winners. At the top of page 2 (page 64 of the QST magazine) they list 13 Categories that the participants can enter their contest results depending on their number of transmitters, Operators and if they were using battery/generator or running off commercial power.

The Lindsay Club, VHARA (Victoria-Haliburton ARA) had a score of over 1000 points and there were 3 members from the Club that had transmitting stations, from their home location.
The Peterborough Club had a score of over 3000 point and had 7 transmitting stations.

I don't know if this is the reason, but certain websites I have gone to don't open in Firefox, but they do in Brave. Sometimes I can get them to open in Firefox by turning of advanced tracking for the site; sometimes not. I don't have any examples to share, but when it happens again I will provide an example.

Linux Applications & Android apps / Firefox Total Cookie Protection

Here's a new feature of Firefox. I doubt it'll convert users from Chrome but it might be a good reason for non-Chrome users to try Firefox again. I'm hoping it spreads to other browsers.

So how did the contest go? Who won and how many contacts did they make?

"living with him mom" <- I love that part! Do you know if he was underage or not? I can see why that'd be a problem.

Interesting. I'll have to go out some evening and take a look. Maybe try taking a picture with my phone and see what it looks like.

Here are a couple of Links about these clouds, that are extremely high (in the Mesosphere) and rare to see, at night time.

This article gives some tips about using your phone to take pictures.

This site has good information about when the NCL's are currently visible. They only happen once in awhile.
Scroll down the page to see an excellent photo of what they look like.
You probably will need to be at a dark location, in the country side or camping.
