       Our operation from Banshee Reeks was a pleasant surprise. With plenty of nice weather, good radio propagation conditions, good food, good facilities, and good friends, it will long be remembered as one of the "Great Field Days." Everyone worked well together and most all operations exceeded expectations. Once more information is available from the scoring crew then it will be posted but it looks like we had close to 3000 contacts with two-third of that on CW. That should be a nice score and all should be very proud of the effort. Thanks to everyone for a great job!

Finally, These Are The Folks Who Put This All Together
The LARG - K4LRG 2004 ARRL Field Day Committee - Tom Garasic - NA4MA, Chairman

These are the guys who put this together. As usual we select a very special person in early January to be our Field Day Chairman. We then pull together several meetings and try to get  many folks involved. By late April we have settled on an operating site, team captains, and many, many more details and tasks. This was no different this year and Tom Garasic and the Committee did a wonderful job. Photograph by Norm Styer - AI2C de Clarkes Gap, VA.
