    "One Delta Delaware" - "One" being one op, "Delta" being your category, and the "Delaware" being your ARRL section. Mine would be WWA for Western Washington, etc.

    You really should also read the full rules here to make sure you understand them:

    I will be 1D, 2D or 3D depending on who shows up. :)

    Just be careful - if you operate 2D, someone could sneak up on you from above or below and you'd never know it until it was too late! ;)

    Oh, it's a read alright!! Field Day has arguably the most involved and complex rules of any "contest" (Field day of course is not a contest - we just keep score and determine winners - but it's NOT a contest :D:D)

    Good luck - have fun!!

    Argh, 62 pages!
    For those who just want to know when and where the W1AW bulletin will be broadcast, it's on page 62, at the bottom.

    It's not entirely clear to me, but as a 1B-Battery station, do I include "Battery" in my exchange? Kind of seems weird that a station with limited power (input or output) would have a longer exchange.

    No, the exchange is just 1B plus your section. The ”battery” part only comes in when reporting results to the ARRL
