ARRL Field Day 2020 @ K5GDX

  

Field Day 2020 was a unique experience with the COVID-19 pandemic in progress. Not to be deterred, the K5GDX FD Operator Crew -- WQ5L, NF4J, WD5BJT, and KM4LRH -- set up one station for each operator with shower curtains between the positions as an added defense against wayward viruses. The crew racked up 1707 QSOs in class 4E. In addition, many GDX members, including WM5DX, K5DL, NA5DX, AE5MI, KF5BA, and AB5FU participated in Field Day from home stations.
