Field Day 2014

This post is a bit late, as Field Day 2014 was over a month ago. We just put our scores into the ARRL database. Propagation was good. The only problem we suffered this year was some participant cancellations over concerns about dust at the site. We were sharing the camping site with a construction project, but they were very helpful and there was no problem from them or their use of the site.

Hope you had a great Field Day too.

The new FDLog GPS USB Clock worked well, keeping our clocks synchronized more accurately than the old GPS setup which no longer works well due to Microsoft’s policy changes about time setting by programs.

The FDLog GPS USB Clock interpolates time from GPS satellites to the millisecond and reports it to the FDLog software when queried. FDLog has been updated to use this more accurate time and more aggressively set the time in the synchronized FDLog programs. It does not set system time, but it does keep track of the offset in the database so rebooting/restarting nodes come back on-time. 🙂
