Results: <excel file> <Bonus point file>We have completed the submission for Field Day.  We managed to obtain all the information except the visitor log, which eliminated the bonus points for a visitation by a served official Thanks goes to all who participated, and especially to all those hands who helped us shut down and tear down quickly when the weather became threatening at 1:30pm.  We ended up getting everything cleaned up in 45 minutes, and managed to leave before the bad weather showed up.

Carolina Windom antennas all are mounted from this tower, giving the clubs excellent height.
