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. Field Day is always the fourth full weekend of June,
beginning at 1800 UTC (1 PM) Saturday, June 24, and running through 2059 UTC Sunday,
The location for the W4BLT field day exercise is to be at Doc Dave's office (Family Dentistry), at 88223 US-278 in Snead. Click here for directions. We will start setting up at 9AM and will need members to help assemble equipment. Click here to download a pdf file of who's bringing what...
It is on days such as this that new Hams are most easily recruited. It is a time that they may see actual communications in practice and they may have an opportunity to get some "hands-on" time. Radios, antennas, coax and other such equipment are always needed and appreciated. Additionally please remember that there is always a need for assistance with assembly and take-down of this equipment.
See you all on the morning of Saturday June 24. Click here to go to the ARRL's 2023 Field Day page.
