Field Day: The Open House for Ham Radio
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.
We are looking for Volunteers to help us operate radios during Field Day. This year will be special, because –thanks to John (W7CD)– we will be running FT8 for the first time.
If you would like to volunteer, please return to this page soon, as we will have more information for you, or you can find our contact information in the ARRL Field Day Locator.
