Field Day Aggregate Score

There were a few questions related to working Field Day from home this year as we have the past couple years. This rule is still in effect this year, and you can work from home using your own call sign and be added to the club aggregate score when submitting your logs. Here are a couple FAQ from the ARRL website concerning this rule. The club name to use when submitting at home logs is “Forsyth ARC


Q: Several of our club members are going to operate independently and wish to attribute their scores to the aggregate club score. What call sign should they use? 

A: Participants should use their own call signs. Except for Class C (mobile) entries, all transmitters, receivers, and antennas must be located within a 1,000-foot-diameter circle may operate using a single call sign. This prohibits the use of a single call sign from more than one location. Those participants operating from home or locations not at the club’s Field Day site must use their own station call signs. Multiple stations operating with a club call sign or modified club call sign, such as W1AW-1, W1AW-2, W1AW-3, etc, are not allowed. 

Q: How does my club submit an aggregate club score? Does the club need to add up each participating member’s scores and submit a club entry with the aggregate score under the club call sign? 

A: Each participant will submit his or her own independent entry under his or her call sign. ARRL will calculate the aggregate score based upon the club name entered on the official Field Day entry form via the web applet (preferred method) or on the paper Field Day entry form. In order for results to be tabulated correctly, all club participants must enter the club’s official name exactly the same, avoiding abbreviations or acronyms. This is important!
