RE: Field Day summary



I was on the FO29 pass at 1825Z.  It was nice and strong then, but no
one else was on.

And truly amazing how many people were prepared and willing to use all 
the power necessary ("and maybe a wee bit more" -- Scotty). FO-29 
certtainly seemed to run out of gas by the end of the FD period when it 
  seemed to quit in mid-pass; of course every watt shot up from the 
ground burns some milliwatts on-orbit. There's only so many of those.
