Question from Don (KK4SIH):
Since I will be operating using my callsign (1D/E) should I upload my contacts (QSOs) to LoTW or QRZ etc so that others can claim the contacts for other purposes or do field day contacts not count for other purposes?
Answer from Stan (K4SBZ)
Many people upload Field Day contacts to LoTW, eQSL and QRZ. Although there is no contest, any contacts that you make at any time (Field Day, DXing, ragchewing, etc.) count for certificates such as WAS, Worked All Counties and the CQ WPX Award.
If you have a good day, you could make WAS in one day on Field Day.
Don’t forget to upload to 3830Scores.com to get a quick look at how you and our club are doing for FD.
Answer from Gerry Gross (WA6POZ)
You can upload your contacts to LOTW since you are operating from home your QTH and grid square have not changed.
Comment from Paul ( KN4TRT)
Thanks for the nice breakdown discussion in the Field Day Band Forecast. I just want to point that you missed one of the most important watering holes. JS8 mode, according to the statistics give at pskreporter.info, is consistently one of the top 4 utilized digital modes. I have included a list of frequency settings for JS8 in the table below, but as a general rule, the JS8 frequencies are 4 kHz above the FT8 frequencies.
160m: 1.842000 MHz
80m: 3.578000 MHz
40m: 7.078000 MHz
20m: 14.078000 MHz
15m: 21.078000 MHz
10m: 28.078000 MHz
6m: 50.318000 MHz
2m: 144.178000 MHz

This might be of interest to anyone who wants an information overload. It looks like a club presentation. It is a fat file. The thoughts on which station class to use are helpful.

I would like to have you use these two videos on the site to help introduce ham to others. This is what I used to get people interested.
