Field Day Part 1

Very enjoyable Field Day despite the terrible propagation conditions. Thanks to all who stopped by!

We’ll be back at it in the morning with a bird walk and pancakes. Hope to see you here!

Solving a Morse Mystery

It’s not surprising that the message didn’t parse. This is American Morse Code, the original, which is distinct from the Continental version people think of as Morse Code today. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Morse_code
It’s even more boring than they thought:

(Correction: That RE is actually a CO, as in “County.”)

For what it’s worth, the Morse code message on our tote bags from HamSCI does indeed contain a special message. Most people assume it spells out the place and date of the conference, and never bother to read it.
