Changing Category during Field Day
I did not see anything in the Field Day rules to cover this, and it isn't that important since I only participated casually, but I am curious about how this might be handled.
Saturday evening I made 7 QSOs from the home QTH with the K2 on battery at 5 watts, operating category 1E.
Sunday I went portable in a local park and made 23 QSOs operating category 1B Battery in the two hours I had.
My inclination was to submit just the 23 portable QSOs as 1B, but then if I leave off the other 7 from the supporting documentation, somebody might not get a QSO with me validated.
Is there a formal way this would be handled?
I don't know about a "formal way" to handle this. As far as I know, there is no mechanism for Field Day to handle your category change in the log-checking process, mainly because there isn't a log-checking process. It ain't like CQWW. I'd not worry about it this time. But in future, don't change your exchange again in a contest. Stick with the one you started with. You could have screwed up all manner of things by mucking about with your exchange. Best to leave it alone once you start using it.
