The comms plan was for JS8Call on 30m. VOACAP predication was for good propagation for most of the other group in the evening. I started operating a bit earlier but was able to contact 6 of the group. I seemed to have a skip zone for a few hundred miles since I couldn't get the NV and AZ stations but was able to reach all the way to ME.
It was a very successful field day. My gear performed well and I feel confident having to take it into the backcountry.
