Field Day in Charleston

Mel and I worked the CW station!!!  Not “Me and I”.  “Me and I” only have the occasional conversation (along with myself too), we haven’t jointly worked a CW station in years.  Maybe that’s my problem!

I went to field day again this year, along with Mel and a few of his friends from various Charleston clubs.  After some last-minute discussion, we ended up using the callsign K4AOC, from one of the guys here.  We had two stations, one for SSB (inside the nice air-conditioned building), and my K3/P3 in a tent for CW.  It was hot and somewhat buggy in the tent.

Me and I worked the CW station, I did the overnight shift (11PM-7AM).  We operated either 20 or 40.  If I remember correctly, we ended up with about 422 CW contacts and 415 phone.  I could have done more if I had my old CW skills, but I only use CW a couple times a year lately.

I did work a couple large groups stations in the DC area, I wonder if we worked any of you guys at one of those outings?
