What is Field Day? According to the American Radio Relay League web site:
Field Day is ham radio’s open house. 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.
Historically the Field Day is held on the Fourth Weekend of June, the 22nd and 23rd this year. The ARG will be setting up temporary transmitting and receiving stations on the flat area north of the Sports Complex.
We will be setting up early Saturday morning, with scheduled activities starting at 11 AM and continuing until 2 PM on Sunday. The public is welcome to stop by and observe the radio operators attempting to contact as many other Field Day Events as possible.
Safety: Be cautious when visiting the area as there will be antenna guy wires in the air and power cords on the grass.
