The ARRL released the 2010 Field Day results online today. SOARC scored 1,738 points under call sign K7LIX, with GOTA station call WM7K. 339 clubs across the US and Canada filed results as class "3A", meaning a portable club station with three transmitters, with power multiplier 2, meaning that either the stations were running less than 5 W or the stations were running off batteries charged by generators. SOARC of course ran with batteries charged by generators. Out of those 339 clubs, SOARC placed 219th. In the Northwestern Division, made up of Alaska, Eastern Washington, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Western Washington, 18 clubs filed as class 3A with power multplier 2: out of those 18, SOARC came out 8th.
