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 22,  and running through 2059 UTC Sunday, June 23.

Rickwood Caverns State Park near Warrior is the location for the W4BLT Field Day exercise.  Click here to see photos from BCARC's 2023 Field Day.

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 22.
