“We need to look at previous year’s logbooks to determine the best times to operate each band so our operators don’t get bored…”
With only two active stations four operators we were never bored. I never had trouble making contacts as many of those “dead bands” come back to life every Field Day and this year we even had good openings on six meters. They say two meters was open but we didn’t have a VHF station. For the six meter contacts I tuned my IC-7300 off of a very active HF band so I could make contacts on six meters while the band was open. My 730′ loop antenna tuned up and seemed to work very well on six.
We will need more stations and more operators before we get bored, I hope the club members will step up to staff the club event better in the future.
