Amateur Radio Field Day - June 22 - 23

thumb_2013fielddaylogoweb.jpgFor anyone who is interested in Amateur Radio, or for those who have not operated in some time, this is your chance to get on the air and see what Ham Radio is all about!  You do not need to have a license to get on the air this weekend if you visit your local club and ask them to put you on the mic.

There are several Field Day event stations across Long Island.  For a full map, visit The ARRL Field Day Station Locator

Field Day as defined on the ARRL Website:
ARRL Field Day is the single most popular on-the-air event held annually in the US and Canada.  Each year over 35,000 amateurs gather with their clubs, friends or simply by themselves to operate. ARRL Field Day is not a fully adjudicated contest, which explains much of its popularity.  It is a time where many aspects of Amateur Radio come together to highlight our many roles. While some will treat it as a contest, most groups use the opportunity to practice their emergency response capabilities.  It is an excellent opportunity to demonstrate Amateur Radio to local elected community leaders, key individuals with the organizations that Amateur Radio might serve in an emergency, as well as the general public. For many clubs, ARRL Field Day is one of the highlights of their annual calendar.
