The results of the 2103 John Moyle National Field Day have been published and are now on the contest page of the WIA website.

This year’s entries came from every Australian mainland call areas, as well as from Tasmania and New Zealand. The total number of logs submitted was only 111. This was a significant decrease from the 140 logs received last year. Well done to all who took part. It was good to see some ZL stations take part again this year, and three stations submitted their log.

Based upon submitted logs, there were some 18,047 contacts, (a 19.8% decrease from 2012) accumulating some 61,213 points claimed, (a 30.7% decrease from 2012). This was good contesting for an Australian field day contest, but unfortunately it resulted in just 111 logs being received. More than 1,000 Australian individual call signs were logged during the contest.

Unfortunately, the numbers of stations who went to the considerable trouble of going out and setting up as a portable station and then not bothering to submit a log as an entry, is still a great disappointment. Some multiple operator stations got very big scores this and perhaps that simply reflects the great and varied planning and implementation efforts required to assemble and operate a multi operator station.
