Every June, more than 40,000 hams throughout North America set up temporary transmitting stations in public places to demonstrate ham radio’s science, skill and service to our communities and our nation. It combines public service, emergency preparedness, community outreach, and technical skills all in a single event. Field Day has been an annual event since 1933, and remains the most popular event in ham radio.
Come join the club as we put a portable field station on the air, operate a wide variety of amateur radio modes including HF single sideband voice, digital, and CW. If you’re interested in amateur radio, but haven’t had a chance to see it in action, this is the event for you! Amateur radio is a family activity – bring your kids and we will get them on the air and talking all around the country in no time!
The club will be hosting ARRL VEC amateur radio testing sessions during Field Day. If you’ve been studying to get licensed, or to upgrade an existing license, contact the club testing manager, Mickey, KG5DAC and let him know you’ll be attending a testing session. All testing sessions cost $15 (cash please), and require a current photo ID, and a copy of your current amateur radio license, if you have one.
