If possible mugs for 2018 should also
include the year in addition to the WFD

The first 37 contacts I made for WFD were QRP.
I than switched to QRO.
Can I use the QRP 4 times multiplier for the 37 QRP contects? And would I note that in the soapbox section of the log file?

Not sure if operating from Arizona counts. Mild weather here - certainly no snow. Probably sunny and close to 70F. Oh well - I'll give it a go.

I am dismayed that WFD rules are approaching those of ARRL Field Day. The old rules were quite refreshing and made my job easier when members come to me for clarification. "All contacts count as 1 point" was nice. Exchanging outdoor temperatures was a refreshing change from the standard 59(9). Oh well, the times they are a-changin'.

I'm really looking forward to this as well...going to set up as mobile outdoor running vhf station..
Use my tilt up milmast system w antennas, vehicle power and/or batt w solar and work/sleep out of/in suv...
All good training imho...
A Winter Field Day makes sense to me. Heck, the ARRL does the VHS Sweepsteaks a week before this. Just too bad that the ARRL doesn't seem to be behind a Winter Field Day. It takes advantage of winter propagations and way less lightning QRM. You can operate 160M then where summer is near impossible. This gets my vote. Question is, is every station contacted worth a point, like the ARRL VHF Contests? That's my biggest gripe about ARRL Summer Field Day is only contestants are counted as points, but the point is to make as many contacts as possible. That should include any verifiable licensed contacts. Just my $0.02 worth.
