HRCS FIELD DAY 2017
ARRL 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 under simulated low-power or emergency power.
All are welcome to join members of the Ham Radio Club as they participate in the 2017 ARRL Field Day. It doesn’t matter what you’re there for, the hot dogs, to watch the setup ( or you can help? ), to watch radio contacts being made, or to make radio contacts yourself, you’re invited to come out and have a grand time.
Setup starts around 8am on Saturday June 24, with radio operations starting at 11am and continuing around the clock until 11am the next day.
The location being used for Field Day is private property and as a result the address is not being publicly announced. Shortly before Field Day the address and further instructions will be sent to those that have signed up or expressed an interest.
Drop in visitors during Field Day are welcome. Radio talk-in into the Somewhere area will be on the KX1ABC repeater (175-7280 – (125.2)), once in town switch to low power on the national calling frequency (146.520 simplex ) for further directions.
If there are any questions/problems/issues please contact the HRSC Field Day Coordinator, Joe Smith, firstname.lastname@example.org
