Field Day 2024

Interested in Amateur Radio? Come join us on June 22nd, 2024 from 12pm to 2pm to learn more about Amateur Radio. Anyone is welcome to drop by during field day. We will be setting up a few different radio set up to compete in ARRL Field Day.

What is Field Day?

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.
