What is Field Day?
Each June the American Radio Relay League (ARRL), the national non-profit agency representing amateur radio, sponsors Field Day. The purpose of Field Day is to test the emergency preparedness of radio amateurs throughout the United States, its possessions, and Canada.
Where is it held?
Radio Amateurs participating in Field Day set up temporary radio stations away from their homes and operate these stations under emergency electrical power for a 24 hour period. During this time these amateurs attempt to contact as many other Field Day stations as possible.
Amateurs are encouraged to put Field Day stations in areas accessible to the public so people can better understand the value of amateur radio in emergency situations. We will be at Big Page Park, on the corner of Weat I Street, between the hospital and Fire Station 2.
The public is always invited to participate and are even be able to communicate via amateur radio because the "Control Operator" will be a FCC licensed amateur radio operator. This event is scheduled for the last full weekend in June each year.
