Did you operate a GOTA station?  How many contacts did it make?
What about a GOTA coach - did you have one?

Did you operate a "Free VHF Station"? How many contacts did it make?

Did you operate High Power or Low Power or QRP?

How about Media Publicity?  That is good for 100 points!

What about operating in a public location - that is good for another 100 points.

What about a public information table - how many people did you get to operate that?

Message Origination to Section Manager: - did you do that?

Message Handling: 10 points for each formal message originated, relayed or received
and delivered during the Field Day period, up to a maximum of 100 points (ten messages).
Copies of each message must be included with the Field Day report. The message to the
ARRL SM or SEC under Rule 7.3.5. does not count towards the total of 10 for this bonus.
Available to all Classes. All messages claimed for bonus points must leave or enter the Field
Day operations via amateur radio RF.

What about alternate power - did you do that?

Educational activity bonus: One (1) 100-point bonus may be claimed if your Field Day
operation includes a specific educational-related activity. The activity can be diverse and must be
related to amateur radio. It must be some type of formal activity. It can be repeated during the
Field Day period but only one bonus is earned.

Site Visitation by an elected governmental official: One (1) 100-point bonus may be
claimed if your Field Day site is visited by an elected government official as the result of an
invitation issued by your group.

What about Field Day Youth Participation - did you put any young people on the air?

Sitting there making a bunch of contacts for yourself or your club is great, but does it actually do anything in the spirit of the rules to promote amateur radio in a positive light to the rest of the world?
There is 100 other contests out there that you can participate in if all you are out for is to make points and get recognition.

I will guarantee you that if you do the things that the rules allows to make bonus points, a club can operate casually and make just a few contacts and yet score high in the points total by just doing the things that the ARRL tells you to do to make points.

The real winners are the clubs that benefits from Field Days by being able to attract new people to amateur radio, and teaches new hams how to operate properly and how to expose non hams to amateur radio in a positive light!
A person that already knows how to operate doesn't really need field days to validate their license or reinforce their ego's...

Covenants and Restrictions are made by people that knows little to nothing about amateur radio.
If you want to get permission to put up antennas and towers - you must first educate these non educated people as to what it is that we do when we talk on our radios.

This includes acting like ladies and gentlemen and following the rules and not setting up on another operator's frequency and just calling CQ.
Too many people - in their lives, pushes and shoves and cheats and steals to get what they want, stepping over the people that does follow the rules and acts like ladies and gentlemen.  Then they wonder why people makes rules to keep them out of their neighborhood, and to keep them from putting up their eyesore antennas and towers.

For the duration of Field Day, my WSPR Station will upload 80, 40, 20, 15 and 10 meter WSPR spot reports to indicate propagation from the Sacramento, CA area. These reports are uploaded to http://wsprnet.org/olddb.php?findcall=kp4md&findreporter=kp4md
The following table indicates minimal SNR report that should support communications for specific modes. More information on WSPR spot report interpretation is on http://www.qsl.net/kp4md/wsprmodes.htm
