    We moved to a new QTH for 2019- the Saab building in East Syracuse. We had access to the cafeteria area of the building, with adjoining bathrooms. This was quite a change from our previous site at Onondaga Lake Park, which used tents for the operating positions.

    Band conditions seemed to be down but we still managed 1954 QSOs with the HF stations, and the VHF station had 74 FT8 QSOs- using a simple dipole at 35 feet. GOTA was active again, with Beth racking up a lot of QSOs on 40 SSB with a low dipole and a Kenwood TS530.

    Everyone had a good time, but in 2020 we may do something completely different and enter 2E from the K2ZJ QTH, using the existing antennas.

    We placed 6th overall in the 2A category!
