This year marked John Curry's K5IMC 62nd consecutive Field Day. John has not missed a single Field Day since he was licensed at age 11. John was working the CW station at the Heart of Texas ARC Field Day site just outside of Waco, Texas.

John wasn't much for talking, but he did answer one question:

"Aside from the modern creature comforts of A/C and computers, what is the single most significant change you've observed today from Field Day 62 years ago?"

John replied, "Most of the contacts were made using AM back then. There wasn't a lot of single side band."
