What is Field Day? It’s an on air contest intended to give operators a chance to practice radio skills in abnormal situations and learning to meet the challenges of emergency preparedness. It’s also a chance for the general public to come see us work and become interested in the capabilities of Amateur Radio. You don’t have to know a thing about ham radio to join in the fun! If you’re interested in Amateur Radio or emergency communications, then come join us and learn more!
