Re: FD Contacts!



Well, that may be, but I read the Field Day rules, and
as we all know, Field Day is NOT a "contest".
If other rules override the Field Day rules, it should
be widely published, or mentioned in the Field Day
rules, which it aint.
I agree that making more than one contact violates the
*spirit* of the rules, but NOT the written Field Day
rules.
