The 2001 SJRA Field Day was again held at the Savich Field in Marlton, and the club achieved a good score of 14462 total points in the competition.  From the table at the left it can be seen that the 40 m stations posted the largest number of contacts in both CW and SSB.  Overall CW stations totaled almost twice as many points as SSB because CW contacts count twice as much as SSB in the score.  SJRA competed in the 6A entry category using 6 transmitters powered by emergency power (portable generators).  SJRA also picked up 136 more contacts for more than 250 more points with the free (does not count to transmitter count) VHF station.  It should be noted that 80m, 15 m, and 10 m operation were carrried out by single stations for each of CW and SSB so that these stations also achieved very impressive QSO totals.  The 20 m stations are somewhat hampered by the loss of propagation during the night time hours, so this is reflected in the totals for both stations.
