ARRL Field Day on the fourth full weekend of June every year is the opportunity for thousands of amateur radio enthusiasts throughout the U.S and Canada to set up temporary communications stations and make contact with like-minded people. Licensed radio operators (often called “Hams”) spend the weekend practicing community outreach, emergency preparedness, and technical skills. It’s basically radio heaven.

A contest is held each year with individuals, clubs, and teams trying to make contact with as many stations as possible over 24 hours. Field Day will take place on June 25 and June 26 with over 35,00 people expected to take part. It begins at 18:00 UTC Saturday and runs through 20:59 UTC Sunday. Pack your camping equipment, throw up some temporary antennas, and spin the dials on your radio, because this not-to-be-missed event is rich in history, tradition, and technology.

All hams or non-hams are invited and you don’t have to be a club member to participate. The staff will assist you in getting on the air and teach you how to operate. You don’t have to be licensed to operate.

NB: EVERYTHING below this line was from last year.. it is a place holder for the info above… so … stop reading now 🙂

Depending upon the amount of filters and frequencies in use we may have to limit the use at certain times.
Above are many of the areas that the club needs help. Some positions are all day, but all can be split up into 2 hour shifts. So the more things you check the more things we can delegate around to each other so we all can have fun!
