The El Paso Amateur Radio Club (W5ES) participated in Field Day from the clubhouse at 2100 San Diego St.  They had 2 HF stations and 1 VHF/UHF station, and operated on solar panels and battery power.  They operated from 1800 GMT until 1800 GMT on Sunday (with a break from 10:00PM Saturday until 8:00AM due to band conditions).  

They logged 89 contacts, of which 55 were CW thanks to Greer K5VQN and Rich WB7A.  

Thanks to all 20 members and visitors who attended and those like Gerald, KF5HNF, and Joel N6TOC who worked all week to get our beam antennas installed and repaired. Thanks to Tom, KE5OIB for the snacks and drinks he dropped off.
