June Is Right Around The Corner – Field Day!

2016 Field Day LogoIn June each year Ham Radio operators across the nation band together and simulate a national communications emergency.

“Field Day is the most popular on-the-air event held annually in the US and Canada. On the fourth weekend of June, more than 35,000 radio amateurs gather with their clubs, groups or simply with friends to operate from remote locations.”

Field Day weekend means setting up your equipment using auxiliary power like generators, batteries or solar panels. The object is to have FUN and to make as many contacts possible with other Field Day stations.

Field Day weekend means getting together with old friends and making new ones, firing up the BBQ’s and having fun! FD is also a way to expose the public to virtues of Ham Radio and demonstrate how Ham Radio prevails when all other forms of communication fail.
